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 thought I was fascinating that a little programming could do something so cool like outputting your name. It just made me wonder, what else can coding do?
The very first coding problem I was assigned was to create a code that outputs the user's name. At first, I was struggling to see what was wrong with it, and all of a sudden it hit me! I fixed my error and the code started working. The feeling of satisfaction I had in that moment is indescribable, and I get that feeling each time I successfully complete a code. My first experience got me thinking… What else can I do with programming?
