computer science program director eastside college prep school
east palo alto, ca
For four years, I ran the Computer Science Program at Eastside College Preparatory School, an independent secondary school focused on preparing low income students for college success. I designed our four year sequence of computer science courses, wrote the curriculum, taught 3 of the 4 classes and worked with volunteer mentors and coaches to run student programming and robotics teams.

Many students stay away from computer science because of its nerdy persona but STEM From Dance seeks to change that by engaging girls of color in coding by connecting it to dance. I write the curriculum that allows students to choreograph a tech-infused dance performance, similar to Beyonce at the 2011 Billboard Awards. I also train and support the STEM coaches who work with students in our after-school programs.
I wrote the student curriculum and technical volunteer training materials for Black Girls Code core workshops in web design, robotics, and game development, and also for the BGC Code Clubs. For each workshop, the curriculum was designed to serve 100+ students ranging in age from 7-17 years old. I also trained and supported the 30+ technical volunteers who delivered the curriculum to students.
