My CSTA Story

Eight years ago, I joined the CSTA Dallas-Fort Worth chapter. This was directly tied to my role as the Computer Science Curriculum Specialist for Plano ISD, Plano, TX About a year later, I was elected to lead the chapter as its president. After six years as chapter president, I have moved to past-president. Five years ago, I joined the CSTA Board. After a year on the Board, the rest of the Board elected me to serve in the roles of Chair-Elect, Chair, and now Past-Chair. I have had so many opportunities to represent CSTA as various events and have met many CSTA members in-person and virtually. I have also served on the Reflective Teachers group for the past five years. We have been building resources for teachers to reflect on their practice tied to the CSTA Standards for CS Teachers. Today, I serve as the Career and Technical Education Coordinator for Plano ISD. I support computer science, engineering and FIRST Robotics across the district of about 48,000 students.
