Hello, my name is Shikonya Cureton. I have taught math in grades 6-8 at all levels over the past 8 years in Spring Branch ISD in Houston. This coming school year I will be a lead math interventionist at an elementary school in Spring Branch ISD.
I am interested in Computer Science, because each year my own children participate in the Hour of Code (I believe this is the correct name) and it looked fun. They actually taught me a little of how to code through the games. I am also interested in being able to reach out to my students who are not engaged in the regular class activities in hopes this will engage them. Since I will be moving to a new position this school year, I will be able to share my thoughts with the teachers and more students than I would have being in the classroom.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my children taking road trips, watching movies at the theater and at home, playing with my mini schnauzer and just enjoying the down time from the classroom.
