I have worked in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools for the past nine years. For the last seven, I taught Technology in a wonderful elementary school. In this time I discovered my passion for coding and games based learning. I began incorporating both into my Technology curriculum and tried to work closely with the classroom teachers to develop engaging projects for the students to do. I am now working with the District in the position of School Partnerships to help get coding and games based learning into more elementary and middle schools.
