My CSTA Story

Joyce joined CSTA in 2019 and has enjoyed being a part of this group of educators. The innovation and enthusiasm in the CSTA organization is an incredible source of inspiration. In 2022, Joyce began volunteering by being a part of the Cutler-Bell Award selection committee, the CS Teaching Excellence Awards selection committee, and the CSTA conference proposal selection committee. She is looking forward to other opportunities to volunteer within the organization.

My Story

Prior to volunteering with CSTA, Joyce has had over 26 years of experience in education. Starting as an art teacher, and then moving into teaching technology, Joyce has been mentoring teachers and pre-service teachers on how to integrate technology in their classrooms from the PK-College level for more than 20 years. Her favorite part about coaching others is seeing the moment when teachers see how the use of technology can enhance activities in their classrooms, and then watching students light up when they experience the activities. She loves to integrate robotics into the curriculum, and is a Certified Ozobot Educator. Joyce has also won grants from the NSA for the Gencyber program which brought cybersecurity summer camps to Winthrop University two years in a row for both teachers and middle/high school students. She partnered with the Citadel to bring training to Winthrop University for a programming summer camp for local teachers. In her free time, Joyce loves traveling with her husband and 4 teenage children.
