Ms. Somers

  • photo of Ms. SomersHello, Computer Academy students! I'm Ms. Somers, and I will be assisting you with your Computer Academy (PLATO) courses. Your counselor asked for you to be enrolled in this program to earn back credits for classes you have failed.

    I majored in Math and Math Education at Miami University of Ohio and began teaching at Overland in 2000 as a math teacher. In 2010, I moved to the Interventions Department and have been helping students graduate by taking online courses through our PLATO software. You can find me in my classroom upstairs (232C) or in my office downstairs inside Activities. You'll know you're in the right place if everything you see is lime green—that's my favorite color.

    Please read through the instructions on this page and begin your courses. If you have any questions, please email me using your Creekmail account.

    I look forward to helping you get that diploma! 

    Wendy Somers, Instructor | wsomers@cherrycreekschools.org

What is PLATO?

  • Computer Academy (PLATO) is an online, self-paced, credit-recovery program for students who are repeating a class. The program is pass/fail and will not replace a student’s original grade for the course. 

    Please contact your counselor if you think you need a PLATO course. Each course counts as a semester credit (.5), and students may only take 4 PLATO courses.

    Sessions are offered during the school year and during breaks.
