My Students

Our student population is about 75% minorities and almost all receive free or reduced-price lunches. They are so appreciative that our school has been able to offer them state-of-the-art curricula in computer science. Everyday I am impressed by my students' curiosity, creativity, and desire to learn.

What keeps me going, as a teacher, is being there to experience my students' "aha" moments when their hard work sparks a new insight or leads to a new discovery.

I know they will be so thankful for your generosity!

My Project

Many of my AP Computer Science Principles students will be the first in their families to attend college, so they are especially excited about the prospect of earning college credit now by taking my AP course and passing the exam in May. But before May they are going to need lots of practice and my students lack the resources to buy those test-prep books so widely used by AP students from other schools.

Using Albert-io means my students can practice online anytime, anywhere while getting in-the-moment feedback on how they're doing.

Of course we don't just "prep for the test" in my course, we spend the majority of class time solving coding challenges, writing code to create apps & games, programming circuit boards, researching computing innovations, learning about networking and how computers work, and many other things. But alas, those multiple choice questions in May are a big part of what they must be prepared for. Please help my students get these licenses so they can give the AP exam their best effort.
