Hi. I am Heather. I am a high school math teacher. While I don’t teach computer science, I plan to co-advise a new girls who code club this year. My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip/

I am Michael David, a substitute teacher on the Waiʻanae coast of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi (where the tourist buses don’t go). I prefer teaching high school math and science, and take some tutoring jobs as well.

My dad was an early computer programmer after WW2, and I grew up using fanfold printouts and punched cards as scratch paper. I worked in publishing, while it was transitioning to a computer-based business, became a general-purpose geek, fixed computers, ran a dialup internet provider, all the while having to write and tweak various bits of code.

I’d like to integrate coding into all that, so here I am. I put a pin on the map, so now Hawaiʻi has a total of two pins. Hm.

Aloha,
Michael

Hello, My name is Cheryl Bobo and I am a retired educator, and now serving as a Technology Leader for all things digital in a small district in Southeast Alaska. I support classroom teachers to implement computer science and computer literacy into their content areas. We have been providing teacher summer camps for 6 years to encourage networking, increasing capacity for teaching STEM skills and practicing/ honing our teaching skills. Alaska is a new Regional Partner for Code.org and I will serve as the Project Manager as we deploy this across Alaska. I thought a great place to start was to go through these courses to better understand what our teachers will experience. I also hope to see the online option more available to those who cant trek to larger Coe.org venues from our remote Alaska locations.

We have good start on STEM education in or SE Alaska schools but computer science courses will be new to many. This forum should be just the place for my teachers to find other learning right along with them.

Hi to everyone in this community,
My name is Leah and I live in Australia. I am happy to have found my way here today to discover more about teaching coding. My son is 9 yrs old and his interest in all things computer related has encouraged me to develop my skills in computer science. As his mother and his primary home education facilitator, I hope to establish a motivational and creative technological learning environment that expands his self directed learning in these particular areas.
I look forward to participating in this community and sharing my learning experience. With a bit of guidance, I hope to build a local community where I currently live in South Australia to create spaces for children to learn via computer science extra curricular activities.
Please feel free to introduce yourself to me anytime, I’m always open to chatting and getting to know new people. :smile:

Hi everyone. My name is Shelly Traver. I teach in Minnetonka MN. I have taken on a new role which has me teaching STEM to K-5 students. I am interested to learn more about coding to help my students with it.

Hi!

My name is Tavnott.
I live in Florida where I teach at the middle school level (6-8). I am thrilled to be apart of this community as I endeavor to learn and expand my knowledge of coding. They say that necessity id the mother of invention and to sum it all up a series of events (of which I’m extremely glad fell into place) brought me to this wonderful place. I hope to learn much that I can share with my students as well as open new opportunities for our school.

As I said before my journey began with a project in mind for my 6th grade Music Exploration class that lead me here, right where I needed to be… and my favorite ice cream flavor is anything that taste awesome.

Hi everyone,

My name is Christy and I teach K-5 technology and STEM at Anchor Bay School District in Chesterfield, Michigan. I teach coding as one part of our overall technology curriculum. I am eager to learn more about using code.org, as I hope to use it more consistently in my classes this school year. I look forward to hearing from everyone in this Professional Learning Community.

I teach students from age 13 to 16.

My primary subjects are maths and natural science.
I look forward to learning s much about programming as possible this year, becaus I hav been given the task of teaching Programming as an elective subject. And I hope that being part of the Code.org community will give me the tools i need to be a great teacher in Programming


#1051

Hi, my name is Sherry Isbell. I am a retired math teacher that is now working part time with a program called Upward Bound Math & Science. I will be working with high school students helping them to prepare for future STEM careers. I taught computer science about 20 years ago (BASIC and Pascal). Our theme for this year is “Are You Up To Code?” ie computer programming. I thought it would help my students to be exposed to some programming so I am going to try Code.org! I hope to excite my students about programming and maybe learn a few things along the way!
