Good morning from Washington state,
I am currently a Washington State University student enrolled in the elementary education program and anticipate to graduate with my teaching degree by May 2018. I have had the great pleasure to partake in the CODE workshops available in my district, including CODE for science, algebra, and fundamentals. I am beyond excited to find ways to integrate these computer science units into my core academic instruction. Specifically, I hope to integrate computer science with math, as I hope to teach the middle grade levels. After graduation, I anticipate moving to Oklahoma and working with Native American students and poverty students. Providing them opportunities to learn and engage with computer science and new technology will be a valuable learning and life opportunity for them.
This new website is even more exciting as I feel now that I have direct access to resources and supports as I progress through the implementation. I also feel that I will continue to remain up to date with the latest changes and additions! I look forward to watching this website grow and learning from other teachers across the states who are also inspired and enthusiastic about computer science and curricula integration.
