I'm an educator and technologist.
I teach middle school computer science in Oakland, CA.
I'm also working on a technology tool to help shift assessment practices in the classroom.
While completing an M.Ed at the High Tech High Graduate School of Education, I spent a year embedded at High Tech High Chula Vista (HTHCV), seeing project-based learning at its finest. Here are some of the projects I did while there.
Worked closely with Professor Dan Garcia at UC Berkeley in faciliating and teaching an introductory computer science designing to increase access to computer sciences to students traditionally underrepresented in the field.
I worked with New York Times-bestselling author Ramit Sethi on the growth team for his online education platform; using engineering to help his courses reach a larger audience.
In collaboration with a few peers, made my transition from tech into education through a self-directed, project-based learning of the education system by visiting schools, reading research, and designing our own school model. See more here: http://understanding.education
Helped launch a new school in Oakland. Worked closely with the founding team during its planning year to define its model, gain charter authorization, and recruit its initial group of students.
Spent a summer interning at Khan Academy. See my blog about my experience here.
