Bio

Keith Jackson is a math and computer science teacher at Oak Ridge High School where teaches Introduction to Programming and AP Computer Science. He is very passionate about growing the computer science program at his school especially among females and minorities. He started the AP class at his school in 2007 with twelve eager students who met at 6:30 every morning to take the class before school. It has now grown into several sections that meet during the school day. Keith has also teamed up with the National Institute of Computational Science to introduce his students to supercomputing. They spend time every year learning parallel programming and working on the Krakken supercomputer housed at the Oak Ridge National Lab. In his spare time he spends time with his beautiful wife Jenney and two sons Kaleb (5) and Luke (3), and gets on the golf course as much as possible.
