Welcome to AP Computer Science! In addition, we are launching the new Project Lead the Way engineering program for the 2019-2020 school year. Are you currently in 8th or 9th grade? Do you have an interest in developing solutions to help improve life and the world around you? You’re invited to sign up for engineering next school year! Stop in to talk about how you can gain hands-on learning experiences and explore a career in STEM. I am happy to be here and look forward to working with you!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of Michigan with a mechanical engineering degree. After, I worked in the automotive industry for several years in design and manufacturing in Ford and Chrysler plants around the world. Once I started a family, I decided to “switch gears” and pursue a fulfilling career in education. I earned my masters degree in secondary education and have been teaching for ten years. My career is now focused on preparing students for a rewarding career in STEM.
My Educational Philosophy
The U.S. needs 1 million more STEM professionals over the next decade than it is projected to produce at the current rate (bls.gov). My purpose as an educator is to serve students by encouraging lifelong learning through varied instructional strategies and access to real world technologies. My mission is to bring real-world experiences to the classroom, providing an effective learning environment, and creating a platform for students to leap into a successful future.
