Amy Wozniak has been teaching computer classes for nine years, including the past six years at Von Steuben Metropolitan Science Center, a Chicago Public School. She is very passionate about getting more girls involved in the male saturated field of computer science. Amy Wozniak tries to initiate interest by getting young girls to participate in an after-school technology club geared specifically toward girls. This club teaches them about various software programs and gets them more involved in community related technology programs. The girls participated in a program to rebuild computers from recycled parts. They have also competed in statewide technology oriented contests winning over $4000 in prizes. When she isn’t teaching, Amy Wozniak likes to run half marathons, completing three in the past eight months. She recently ran the inaugural Hollywood Half marathon in California. She also likes to cook, bake, read and play sports.
