School/District:俄勒冈州宪章学院
State:Oregon
Job Title:CTE计算机科学大师老师

Prior to becoming a teacher, Ms. Catherine Hay worked for 15 years with the Army Corp of Engineers in Information Technology(IT). She knows how invaluable practical experience is to anyone’s career. Problem solving, professional skills, and communication are essential in any job.

她在高中的高中夏季租赁IT技术人员开始。从那里,她联网并能够获得实习,这导致​​了一个位置。随着时间的推移,她成为波特兰地区的IT经理,监督,硬件,软件,网络和网络设计人员。如果没有早期获得的经验,所有这些都不会成为可能,因为它在此时没有培训计划或CS。

付出,她决定帮助在当地schools and help students see the possibilities and fun of math and science and bring a STEM math class to local area schools in small towns called Warren and Scappoose, Oregon. By engaging students with hands-on activities relating math and science, she served as a role model for young girls wanting to enter STEM fields. She was constantly told that she should become a teacher by parents and teachers, so she took on that challenge and decided to go back to school and become a Mathematics teacher and earn a Master’s Degree in Teaching Mathematics. Her volunteer class was very popular with teachers and students and she volunteered for 7 years, starting with 3rd graders and then with 4th – 5th graders, all while also studying for her degree.

她在2017年毕业的一套学生,以及她教导的所有学生都在陷入干职业领域的道路上。它让她自豪地成为那个人有一些影响。她今天仍然看到了她的学生,他们都记得他们学习的实验和乐趣。这让她想起了她做出了正确的选择。

将她的职业生涯与她的教学经验混合,她喜欢通过大学或认证,帮助学生设定一条道路,以便在信息技术中追求他们的职业目标。通过建立相关课程,计算机实验室,认证和经验的计算机科学途径,学生获得任何工作的21世纪专业技能的行业知识,并暴露于不同的IT研究路径。

“如果学生有兴趣并愿意努力,那么有一种等待他们的可能性世界。我们正在提供那些踏脚石。“Catherine Hay,CTE计算机科学大师。
