JK-12 Technology Coordinator

Computer programming has a major impact on our daily lives, even in ways and places that might not be immediately obvious. On a typical day, we use hundreds of tools and services that work because of their underlying programming. Thousands of jobs that did not exist 30 years ago now serve to create and maintain the technology we use for communication, banking, energy, travel, medical records, entertainment, research, national security, and more. Whatever career paths our students choose in the future, we can be sure that their success will depend in some part on their understanding of technology and how it supports our daily activities.

    Steward helped me develop the skills I needed to succeed in college and the courage and confidence to set competitive career goals for myself. But, these skills weren’t lessons I learned just in Steward’s classrooms; they came from the athletic fields, in the hallways, and during Honor Council meetings, too.
