Hello, My name is Terri Hughes. For the past 27 years I’ve taught all subjects in middle school for grades five through seven, but have spent the most time in sixth grade. This year my middle school, Campbell Middle School, closed its doors forever. Next year it will become the preK through fourth grade Campbell School of Innovation (CSI). I feel incredibly fortunate that I will be teaching second grade there next year. Eventually CSI will be a preK-8th grade school. We will be looking at changing the way we educate children and will be using design thinking and project based learning.
I live in San Jose’s oldest subdivision near downtown and teach in Campbell. Both are located about an hour south of San Francisco, California. I will finish my Masters in Educational Leadership from Santa Clara University tomorrow! This summer I am attending many trainings to gear up to CSI’s grand opening and attending #MERIT18 at the Krause Center of Innovation located at Foothill College. It is going to be a busy summer spent learning and developing my teaching craft.
While I didn’t know much about computer science, it hasn’t kept me from giving those opportunities to students. I have done a few Code.org CS First clubs. I’m looking forward to upping my skills so that I can better support my second graders next year in bring rich computer science experiences into our classroom.
