My name is Katie Lavin and I am a teacher and Tech Coordinator for Mark Sheridan Math and Science Academy. MSA is a K - 8 Chicago Public School found on the near south side of Chicago (near Comiskey Park). I taught junior high math and science for eight years before transitioning into my current position as tech coordinator. I wear a host of hats at MSA: teach computer class to all K - 8 students, hardware and software upkeep for the building, provide all tech professional development, update all school social media outlets (school website, Twitter, YouTube, etc.), run our student news broadcast, along with a few other odds and ends : )

I taught the Code.org Course 1 - 3 to all my K - 8 students for the past two years. I love Code.org and recently became a Code.org K-5 affiliate. I am looking forward to sharing the Code.org curriculum with other teachers this summer through my professional development sessions!
I LOVE soccer and still play competitively! Go USA!
