My Students

My school is located in an urban environment and encompasses 7th through 9th grade. Our student population is a mix of many ethnic groups, including a large group of multinational refugees. The students are hard working and eager to learn, but many of our students have limited access to computers and other computer science tools outside of the classroom.

Our students are eager to explore the fast-paced developing world of computer science and engineering technology.

Regardless of their background or computer access, my students work hard to move through my district's newly expanded computer science curriculum. We are developing a path for students to experience new computer curriculum 7th through 9th grades.

My Project

The summer institute and professional development opportunities provided by Pathfinders is a wonderful way for teachers from across the country to meet and collaborate. The ability to work together to develop new lessons and use new technologies is critical to the continuing development of current valid curriculum.

The new curriculum taught in the summer institutes provide teachers with hands-on access to the challenging field of computer science.

Creating a Computer Science curriculum for today's schools is a constant ever-evolving challenge. Teachers involved in the seminars can go back to their home states and use the remainder of the summer break to develop the new lessons and projects based on the newest technology.
