Description

Class Experience

Develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to express ideas or address a problem. Develop plans that describe a program’s sequence of events, goals, and expected outcomes.  Identify and fix errors using a systematic process. Using correct terminology, describe steps taken, and choices made during the iterative process of program development. 
Great teachers form strong relationships with their students by engaging them in the subjects they are passionate about. I have always been a logical thinker who enjoys science, math, technology, and engineering both for work and play. 

I worked as an engineer for companies like Frito-Lay, Anheuser-Busch, Amgen as a consultant for many years improving their systems with automation and equipment. Once I became a parent, I began teaching extra-curricular classes as a way to have more time at home, but stay involved in subjects that bring me joy. 

Realizing that by being warm, professional, and enthusiastic, I am able to engage students. My creative lessons and strong classroom presence help build student confidence while increasing interest in subjects that may otherwise seem intimidating. 
Each Scratch project will take approximately one hour to complete. Students will draw and code projects independently but share them with the group weekly.

Video discussions should be kept to 1-2 minutes in length and may take 15 minutes to create and upload into the Outschool classroom.
An external mouse is REQUIRED. Please no touchpads. A physical keyboard is REQUIRED. iPad virtual keyboards will not work. A computer desktop or laptop is preferred over the use of an iPad for Scratch. Two devices or two monitor displays would be ideal. One to watch instructions on zoom and one to use for coding. Scratch 3.0 works offline and can be downloaded from https://scratch.mit.edu/download If you can not get Scratch 3.0, the online version can be used by creating an account here: https://scratch.mit.edu/join Please create a username that does NOT reveal the identity of your student.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Remember to keep your private information private - for example, no last names, home cities, or gaming handles shared within the classroom. Please review with your student before class.

For students using Scratch at https://scratch.mit.edu/ a user account should be created by parents in order to save students' progress. In creating an account, certain personally identifying information, generally consisting of the student’s or parents' name and e-mail address, must be provided to Scratch's website operator in order to create an account. Projects are UNSHARED by default and user information is not shared within the Outschool classroom. Scratch does not make private account information available to anyone. For more information, please see Scratch's Privacy Policy located here: https://scratch.mit.edu/privacy_policy

An alternative to creating an account is to download the Scratch 3 app found here: https://scratch.mit.edu/download
This will save all work locally to your computer and your student will not be able to share with the online community until you decide to create an online account.

For added engagement, we will be using activities in Nearpod.
