How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
A friend. I am just retiring from teaching computer science in a title1 high school, working with underserved youth. I want to continue working with youth and educators but working for myself. I owned my own consuling business years ago and would like to start consulting in educaion.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am retiring from teaching this week and plan to freelance teaching computer science classes and holding educational workshops. writing.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to work 'location independently' and manage my time and workload so I can spend more time with family and friends.
I see myself hosting educational workshops and camps throughout the year; teaching youths and also teaching teachers how to teach computer science in fun and creative ways. I also want to write curriculum that can be used in schools to teach programming.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to balance work and personal life so I have time to pursue my art and spend time with family and friends while still having sustainable income.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I've often been called a 'change maker' and I love that. I make things happen! I've won wo educator awards the past few years for my work with underserved girls to teach them computer programming and helping them go to college and gwt into internships in IT fields. I even convince our school district to let me teach an all girls computer programming class. It was very successful and opened many doors for these young ladies who would not have considered this type of work or even pursuing college had it not been for my class! I hope to continue this only outside of traditional schools.
