Old Dominion University
My Conference Goal:
To meet my future collaborators.
To learn more about how to get my proposals selected for funding.
My Project Goal:
The main starting point is from the assumption that if we want to address the problems of underrepresented students, one should address the problems that teachers face.
I am working with local urban public schools in the region: Norfolk Public Schools and Tidewater Community College on multiple funded projects to strengthen the educational pathways. Norfolk Public Schools is the first public school system in the Commonwealth of Virginia to have AP Computer Science, IT Fundamentals and Cybersecurity Fundamentals courses offered in all five public schools in its district and it will provide the unique opportunity is now available as a career option for any high schooler residing in Norfolk, VA. The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Perkins Act.
