I've been an educator for 14 years, but my assignment this year might be my best one yet: I get to teach a course titled Art in Engineering to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. This course is just as much fun as it sounds. We build, draw, paint, code, design, and tinker. We use everything from the low tech, like cardboard and glue guns, to high tech, with CNC laser cutters and our new coding platform on our Chromebooks.
I also get to teach two electives: Robotics and Drama.
Additionally, I'm coaching the Climbing Club at Hemingway this year. It's been a lot of fun to share one of my main passions outside school, rock climbing, with the students. We're expanding our climbing wall in 2021-2022, thanks to an incredibly generous fundraising effort from the 2020-2021 5th grade families.
