Bio

I am in my first year of teaching computer science at Fort Smith Southside but had previous taught CS at Van Buren. I currently teach 5 different CS subjects (Mobile App Dev 1/2, Mobile App Dev 3/4, AP CS Principles, AP CSA, and Computer Science 1/2. I am trying to grow the CS Dept at Southside and get more girls involved. We are working with ArcBest Technologies to start a Girls Who Code program at Southside and Northside. We hope to eventually reach down to the various Junior High Schools in the Fort Smith School District. I also volunteered this summer with STEM Sisters at their camp for rising 7th grade girls interested in STEM careers. We had about 50 girls at the week long camp learning all about STEM and all that the future holds for them. It was very powerful!
