Hello! My name is Lesley Hazen and I live in Western New York in beautiful Chautauqua County! I have been a retired ELA teacher for four years, but have been recruited to come back to the parochial school I taught in for several years to be .5 ELA 6-8 and .5 CS PreK-8. Yikes! I know.
There was no curriculum left behind from the former CS teacher, so I’ve been evaluating programs for my younger learners and have decided on code.org. I’ve used the Cup Stacking lesson in the middle school grades and they really loved it. The middle school grades will doing a CS Club using Scratch, but I find code.org easier to teach from with the detailed lesson plans.
My favorite ice cream is Hershey’s Moose Tracks
