US Grade 3 - 5
Intermediate Level
  • 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. Create several computational artifacts for practical intent, personal expression, or to address a societal issue.
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. 
Assessment
Frequency: included
Details: In this class, assessments will primarily consist of personal assessments conducted by the teacher through observation of students during class sessions. These assessments serve to gauge each student's understanding, progress, and engagement with the material covered. Various types of assessments, such as coding exercises, project presentations, and participation in discussions, may be offered periodically to provide a comprehensive evaluation of students' learning. Assessments will typically be conducted in class to ensure real-time feedback and interaction. While participation in assessments is highly encouraged for all students to track their development and receive tailored support, they are not mandatory. However, engaging in assessments offers valuable insights and opportunities for growth, making them a beneficial aspect of the learning experience.

Efficiently uses computer and mouse.
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.
