Redefining what it means to do computer science and the contexts in which we code

Building educators' understanding and implementation of justice-oriented computer science education


  • 15+ year high school math and computer science educator,
  • Lecturer for graduate level educational technology courses,
  • Computer science education researcher focused on justice-oriented teacher practices,
  • Equity-focused professional development author and facilitator,
  • Computer science curriculum developer, and
  • Consultant for schools and districts that wish to create or improve computer science pathways.

The following projects represent the diverse experience I bring to teams as well as the culturally relevant and design-oriented approach I bring to research and practice.

About Me

Students sharing e-textile projects

I am a computer science educator and researcher, focused on increasing access to minoritized groups. I search for ways to redefine what it means to do computer scienceĀ and in what contexts. I work with educators to leverage their expertise to develop new pedagogical and curricular models to transition toward justice-oriented computer science education. I work with researchers to develop and implement studies focused on the practices and lived experiences of computer science educators. I work with schools and districts to develop new computer science pathways and modify existing pathways to reach all learners.
