    Computer Science at Grant: 2023-2024 School Year

    Hi, I'm the Computer Science teacher here at Grant. We offer 3 levels of classes: CS 1-2, AP Computer Science A (CS 3-4), and CS 5-6. Students develop their programming skills primarily through project-based learning and gain autonomy as they progress from one year to the next.

    The students who do best in my class tend to be those who like to make things, solve puzzles, and/or have an artistic streak. Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions about what we do in class, if you want to know more about the scope and sequence of the program, or have any other questions or concerns that I can address.

    Seeing me outside of class

    If you're a current student, a prospective student, or a parent and wish to speak to me in person I'm generally available after school in the computer lab until at least 4:30pm every day except for Tuesday (when we have a staff meeting). I occasionally have other meetings after school though, so please check in with me first if you want to come talk to me after hours. Email is generally the best way to get ahold of me; I check it several times a day, both at school and at home.
