Welcome to CS Discoveries: Introduce yourself

Hello! I am Monica Pollack and I am a K-12 School Library Media Specialist. I will be teaching CS Discoveries to a yet to be determined HS class for the 24/25 school year. Whether I will have the class for a full year or half the year has not been decided so I have not selected the units I will be teaching but know that I will definitely be teaching Unit 1 and Unit 4. I am most excited about trying something new in my teaching career.

Hi everyone, I’m Catherine!

I taught the first 3 units as a semeseter-long course to 7th graders last year. This upcoming year, I’ll be teaching grades 6-8 in mixed grade level classes. I’m hoping to teach my new kids the first 3 units and have my returning students work on the second half of the course more independently.

I’m excited to learn more about the machine learning unit and using the circuit playground!

Hi, my name is Kaylan Deal and I will be teaching grades 6-8 for the 24-25 school year. I will be covering all of the CSD units since I have multiple grade levels. I am most excited about exposing my students to the ability to make games and actually write code with JavaScript and CSS/HTML.

My name is Sheryl and I taught middle school (grades 5-8) last school year. I would love to teach Units 1,2,3, 6 & 7. I am excited that code.org does an outstanding job of providing such great resources for the teacher. Makes planning and implementation so much easier.

Hello! I am replying here as I go through the self-paced CS Discoveries PD. I am planning on teaching it this fall in a hybrid setting at an independent study school with in-person resource centers. I am familiarizing myself with the curriculum and resources and am sure that I will be using the forums to learn from all of you. Thanks in advance!
