As the head of the Computer Science pathway here at Franklin High, I hope to encourage my students to pursue a career in computer science. I started out teaching Math after graduating from the University of California, Davis, but slowly moved towards robotics and computer science, where I found engaged students learning more about mathematics. I've since worked as a CTE teacher with Franklin, finding any opportunities for my students to involve themselves with technology.
Hear what past students have to say.
I liked the labs we did with Java that compelled us to think outside the box.
I liked the labs and being able to collaborate on code with my row partners. I also like being able to work individually on challenging projects.
I enjoyed how the class was like an adventure. We explored different concepts and were able to try many things on our own, but whenever we needed help, Mr. Dagler was always there. It was fun.
I like this class because it involves a lot of Math and critical thinking.
I liked learning how to code in a fun way that I can use in the future.
It is very interactive with a combination of notes and doing it independently.
