My Students

Growing up in the Bay Area, my students are surrounded by the companies that are innovating the technology world. Many are eager to join this exciting workforce. My school and I are working hard to develop our Computer Science program to prepare them for bright futures.

My students are a very diverse group of eager learners studying rigorous computer programming principles and web development skills.

They come from working-class families who work hard to give them every opportunity in life.

My Project

My AP Computer Science students are learning object-oriented programming in Java, but the real power and use of Java in their own world today is its use as the backbone of Android applications.

I want students to have access to smartphones on which they can run their own apps and websites created in class.

We have Android Studio on our computers, and while some students are fortunate enough to have Android phones that they can use, many do not. With a few classroom phones, students can take turns running their apps on a real phone in real time, enhancing the application of their programming skills learned in my class without socioeconomic status as a gatekeeper.

My Intro to CS students learn real-world front-end web development, and should be thinking "mobile first" in all of their UI and UX designs. Dedicated phones they can use in class to test their websites for interactivity and usability on today's smartphone web browsers is key to taking their learning to the next level and ensuring they're in the same mindset as professionals who do this every day.
