A Bit About Yourself


#81

Hello,
My name is Tanya Pace. I teach 8th grade Math at Reagan K-8 in Houston ISD. I’m always looking for new and innovative ways of teaching Math, which is why I’m interested in computer science. This is an opportunity to help students explore other uses of math. Students and myself having the opportunity to make connections with math and coding is intriguing. In my free time I enjoy making jewelry, working on home projects and spending time with my family.

Hello,
My name is Joanne Lim and currently, I am a math interventionist at an elementary campus in Spring Branch ISD in Houston, Texas. I feel a bit out of place seeming as how I’ve never taught Algebra courses or middle/high school level, but I am very interested in CS.
First of all, for me, I think it’s about exposure - new exposure for me and definitely, after more training, hopefully greater exposure for my student body as well as our staff to be introduced to CS even in the elementary grades. I was very enlightened when I went through the code.org teacher training last summer and how we can apply CS to many core areas of learning!
My life is full of my faith, family, friends, and I cherish traveling and photography!

I really liked implementing the hour of code with our students, too

Hi, Joanne! We will be working together once again.

I am excited about learning how to implement CS into our elementary grades as well. This will be an learning experience for me since this is my first course introducing me to CS.

Hello
My name is Kelvin Tran and i am teaching Algebra 1 at Stevenson Middle School.
I have always been interested in computer science but has never taken any courses before.
I have no background in coding so this will be a eye and mind-opening experience for me.
Beside teaching, I loves to volunteer outside of school to serve the youth in the community.
