Letter to the Judges
My name is Grace Zaski and as a high school senior, I have a lot of goals for my future. One of my most important goals currently is to finish my senior year with good grades. Another personal goal I have is that I want to major in primary education in college and get a job as an elementary school teacher. For my senior project, I decided to create, edit and design a website. The website I designed is for a local preschool called Bascomb Methodist United Preschool. I designed the website for my mom's close friend, Kathi Underwood, the director at Bascomb Preschool.
For my research paper, I wrote about the impacts that the internet has on businesses. Before I started researching, I thought I knew the basics about the internet and its influence, but I was wrong. After researching and writing a paper on this topic I learned how much the internet plays a role in the current economy. I also thought it was interesting that there are people who argue if the internet truly is a big factor for businesses. It was interesting to dig deeper into the topic and learn just got much information is available over a simple question.
My product for my senior project was a new, polished website for Bascomb United Methodist Preschool. This preschool is a business and has to make income to stay open so having nice website is very beneficial. If someone is looking on the internet for a new school, they are more likely to choose a place with a professional looking, put together website over a preschool without one. Designing a website correlates to my research paper because the basic idea of the internet being an influence on a business. Throughout the process of designing the website I faced multiple problems. One of the main problems I faced was using the software Joomla because it was new to me and I was unaware of a lot of the terminology. Although I did face obstacles, I was able to figure out how to use the software with my facilitators help and create a good website.
There are multiple careers that can branch off from designing a website. The most common is becoming a website designer for a living. Website design is such a hot career right now, some people are even calling it a new form of Modern Art. Personally I would not want to major in something so technical and dedicate the rest of my life to website designing because the process is very long and stressful. I learned that I would much rather spend my life in a more interactive environment and work with kids.
Overall, senior project was a very big learning stretch for me and through the stress and work I put into it I learned a lot about myself. The main thing I picked up which designing a website is it is a really cool way to connect to the internet and different crowds. Designing a website was an inspiring experience and an interesting activity to do. Thank you for spending your time judging my product, I hope you enjoyed it.
