I am an educator living in London, Ontario. I am passionate about introducing students and teachers to the world of coding.
I just completed my 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 am proud to be working for Fair Chance Learning as the Director of Research and Inquiry. I have the honour to work with educational districts around Canada delivering professional learning on coding and computational thinking as well as speaking about a a skill that I believe is so valuable.
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.
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!
