Tech & Innovation Coach, CS Instructor at #AISLearns.
Who am I as a educator?
In my current role as a digital coach and computer science instructor, building relationships, recognizing patterns and fostering a culture of collaboration guide much of what I do. My aim is to allow learners the space to seek out and engage with their interests, to help them experience the value of deep exploration, and to offer them the weight of our experience and learn alongside them.
My areas of expertise include robotics, visual and presentation design, and contemporary learning practices

In the five years that I have known Alex, I have seen him work as a visual art teacher and as a technology integrator. In both roles, he helps students and colleagues grow and use 21st century skills in the classroom. He is a very hands on teacher and his lessons are always engaging and applicable to other areas of student life.
