My CSTA Story

Amanda was inspired to join CSTA because the organization’s focus combines her interests in computer science and education. While she has not worked as a formal classroom teacher, she worked as a dance teacher for several years. After earning her undergraduate degree in computer science, Amanda pursued research on STEM education, earning a PhD in learning, teaching, and diversity. Amanda enjoys learning from and supporting the members of CSTA as we strive to provide equitable access to CS education through quality professional development and other programs.

My Story

Amanda is the project manager for Expanded Computer Science Professional Development Week, a grant from the US Department of Education that supports teacher-driven PD events for K–12 CS teachers. Drawing on her experience in computer science and education research, Amanda also supports the work of CSTA’s PD Committee and PD Provider Summits to curate quality professional learning opportunities for CS educators.
