My CSTA Story

Janice was inspired to be a part of CSTA initially through her local CSTA AZ chapter where she was surrounded by like-minded and passionate CS educators who cared about bringing CS to students in equitable and inclusive ways. To this end, she has served as president of CSTA AZ and on the board of CSTA.

My Story

As a former CS teacher, instructional coach, administrator, state board of education member, and now researcher, Janice brings a unique lens to her work of advocating for more equitable systems to support students toward full participation in CS education. She has been honored to be a Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching, NCWIT K-12 Educator, ISTE Making IT Happen, and NSF CAREER award recipient.
