Welcome! Please introduce yourself



Hi my name is Chere and I teach at a college preparatory school in Jackson MS. I will be teaching a 9 week course on intro to computer programming course for the 7th grade. The students will complete the express course will a little amendment and end with a project to compliment what they understood through the course. I am fairly new to computer science and look for resources and advice daily.

Would love to go to a Code.org professional develop workshop.


Hi Chere! Sounds like you have a great plan in place. You can request a local workshop via this link: https://studio.code.org/pd/regional_partner_contact/new


HI my name is Michele Hagood and I teach BIM I, AV Technology, DC BCIS and Accounting I ( grade level 9-12).
Last school year during the last three weeks of school we concentrated on coding. 80 of my students log into code.org and completed several sections of CS Principles. We had a great time learning my students completed the app lab and enjoyed the activity very much. This school year I hope to have them work on code.org during the school year on Fridays or Mondays. I am interesting in being part of this community to increase my knowledge of coding and to collaborate with other teachers who love learning as well.


Hi all!
My name is Debra and I am new to teaching computer science this year. I was previously the librarian at our K-4 elementary school here in Cedar Lake, IN. About 4-5 years ago, I discovered the magic that is Makerspace! I decided this was something our students desperately needed and through all my work researching, developing and creating new activities for it, I found that technology was something that really got me excited, especially teaching the kids about what they can do with it, so moving to teaching computers was a natural fit! I am really looking forward to this new adventure and working with folks who see the importance of bringing computer science to our kids so they are prepared for the future!


Hi, my name is Guruh Nusantara.

Im from Indonesia. I teach kindergarten, elementary and junior highschool student for code programming. I usually do design and have little basic on programming, and I think this community is a right place to start catch up my learning on programming and how to teach it to my student.

Its nice to be here, thank you :wink:


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.



Hello I am Kyle. I am a teacher in Vancouver Canada 4/5 we run a bring your own device program so code.org is awesome! I am excited to use this program more in the fall!


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, my name is Josephine. I live in Albania. I am a TEFL volunteer in the Peace Corps. The school I work with is starting an All Girls Coding Course. We are very excited to use this platform to teach coding to the teachers who can intern teach it to the students year after year.


Hi, I’m Dennis Wilson. I’m about to start a program through the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology to teach coding to middle and high school students. I’m really interested in anything that can help me increase student interest in the subject of computer science and STEM in general.


Hi there,
My name is Adam.
I live in Denmark and homeschool 2 kids aged 6 and 8.
I would have loved to have learned to code myself but have never got aroud to do it. Now I have the chance to explore coding and maybe learn it myself along with my kids.

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 my name is Hilary I live in northern Maine and teach grades 1-8 technology. I am interested in teaching some coding basics in my classes.


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.



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.
