Brief biography: 
I started teaching Scratch programming to 4th and 5th graders as an after-school activity. I taught in the computer lab at the elementary school and had participated in the hour of code and wanted to extend the enthusiasm beyond the classroom. In 2017 I changed jobs and now teach at the middle school level. I use Scratch in my Computer Skills classes for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade to teach the basics of computer science. I have a BS in CS that dates back to 1987. I worked as a software engineer for 12 years before moving into teaching. Teaching Scratch allows me to combine my interest in education with my personal CS education.
