I teach computer literacy and computer science to students in prekindergarten through 8th grade. I create curricula and projects to cover technology standards and incorporate cross-curricular subject matter. I’ve also led professional development and training sessions for staff in using new technology with students, as well as for lesson planning. I've presented on non-screen-based programming education at FETC and TCEA.
My passion is discovering and implementing new ways to teach computational thinking (e.g. using Cubetto and other tactile toys to introduce programming concepts prekindergarten and early primary, using game-based teaching tools like CodeCombat for middle schoolers, and hands-on programming with the micro:bit).
