I’m Erik Brillon and I live and work in New York (Florida, NY to be exact). I currently teach HS students with two middle school sections (we have grades 6-12 in our school).

Our school district is implementing the AP Computer Science Principles course for SY1920 and I’m in the process of getting course approvals, etc. from our Board of Ed and we plan on using code.org to help us achieve our goals for curriculum building.

I have no programming experience or any of the code.org stuff however I was a IT professional for 20 years before changing to K-12 education (I’m also an adjunct professor for 18 years).

I am looking to network with teachers in my area and hopefully I can learn from all of you!

Thanks and see you online!

Hey everyone,

My name’s Nathan Barten. I teach science in Cambridge, Minnesota. New to coding, though I took a C++ course in high school 15+ years ago. Not sure how much of that will come back to me. I’ll be teaching a class of 6th graders. I was asked to come up with a computer science class for them with just a week to prep. Code.org seems to be the best thing out there. I anticipate I’ll be learning as much or more than the students! Joining this community because I’m sure I’ll have questions and will need someone to turn to.




Hey everyone!
My name is Kayla Simmons. I teach 4th grade in Phoenix, Arizona. I graduated from ESU in 2012 and have worked in Arizona, Pennsylvania and South Korea. I’m very excited to start using Code.org. I don’t have any experience teaching computer science, but like some others, I have taken HTML in high school. I remember how fun it was to use and can’t wait for my students to share in the excitement. Lastly, my favorite ice cream flavor is soft serve pumpkin with hot fudge :slight_smile:
