My name is Mara Lansdown. I teach seventh and eighth grade math at Arroyo Seco Museum Science Magnet in Highland Park, California. I've been teaching math for seven years. Prior to my current assignment, I was an elementary school teacher for fifteen years.
I'm interested in computer science because so many future jobs will require our students to be computer literate. I want to be able to acquire the tools necessary to inspire them to pursue more open ended fields of study. I'm limited in my knowledge, so this course with code.org interested me.
Out side of the classroom I'm super busy with my large family. I try to stay healthy and fit.
