I am an advocate for introducing students and teachers to the world of coding. I love to share my passion for creative coding and digital making tools with students and teachers at school districts and educational conferences.
I have a Masters in Professional Education (MPEd) in the field of Mathematics Education at Western University. I also hold an Honours Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree from Western as well as a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree from the University of Toronto.
I teach Computational Thinking in Mathematics and Science Education at Western University’s Faculty of Education. I have also had the privilege to co-author articles published in academic journals focusing on computational thinking, one of which can be read online here.
Along with my husband, Steven Floyd, I am co-hosting TVO’s TeachOntario Coding and Computational Thinking Hub. This is a place for highlighting the amazing work that educators are engaging in and to share ideas surrounding coding and computational thinking.
I am currently on leave from the Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB), where I taught mostly computer science and mathematics for 14 years.
I hope to add to this blog periodically to share my thoughts and ideas for educators surrounding coding and computational thinking.
Thanks for visiting!
