Bio

Terri Whitmer has been teaching AP Computer Science Principles for the past 3 years, prior to that she taught AP Computer Science A for 4 years. Her decision to initiate the Computer Science Principles course was due to the underrepresentation of female and minority students who were taking computer science courses overall, but particularly at her high school. In 2014, she also instituted Programming and Software Development, a two-year Career-Technical Education program at Stow-Munroe Falls High School (a comprehensive high school through the Six-District Educational Compact) because students were wishing there were other computing classes that they could take in addition to the AP coursework. The two-year CTE program offers high school as well as post-secondary and CTAG credit.
