Hi, I'm Aatash.

I’m currently building Inkwire and teaching computer science at West Oakland Middle School.

My current passions lie at the intersection of technology and education reform.

I care about young people developing the skills and tools they need to be their best selves.

Some of my experiences

Self-Guided Edu Masters

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

Beauty & Joy of Computing

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.

High Tech High GSE

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.

I Will Teach You to Be Rich

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.

Khan Academy

Spent a summer interning at Khan Academy. See my blog about my experience here.

Latitude High School

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.
