For fun my wife and I enjoy traveling and going to concerts.


I’ve been teaching 6 years at an alternative high school in Tooele, UT. I currently teach Business Communications, Computer Science Principles, Entrepreneurship and Marketing. I will be adding ECS in the fall. I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and spoiling my grandsons.


Hello Fellow Educators. My name is Donald R. Sheldon, but you can refer to me as Don.

Hello everyone!

My name is Gabriela Barbeito. I am currently a 6th and 7th grade Science teacher at Mater Lakes Academy in Miami, FL. I studied Biology at Florida International University and this past year was my second year as a Science teacher. I know a little bit of coding, and it is something I have always been interested in, so I am excited to be able to implement it in my classroom and to make my class more interactive.

My hobbies include photography, traveling, entomology, and reading.



My name is Mary Faustino. I teach Algebra I at Sharpstown International School in Houston, Texas. This is my first time to be introduced to coding so I’m just testing it out and hoping that I’ll be able to use the program in my classroom for the students to have fun and at the same time be educational.

My husband and I love traveling and trying out new food. :smile:
