We are looking for a magnet specialist who can keep pushing us to innovate and integrate our school-wide computational thinking and computer science focus. We are a year-round school that begin an innovation process three years ago to implement this vision:
Through an immersive technology learning environment, Kenwood students will transcend simple usership to become digital producers, empowering themselves and others in their community through their critical thinking, academic and intellectual risk taking, collaboration and refined sense of digital citizenship.
This is exciting! I was hired as Kenwood's Librarian at the moment that there was a crest of energy around computational thinking and computer science. There was contagious curiosity among teachers about teaching code, trying new things, and being willing to fail.
As we say goodbye to Todd Lash (@Todd_Lash) and Minsoo Park, we hope we can find new leaders to support our growth. Former librarians are encouraged to apply (and work with me!), CS teachers, classroom teachers who have worked with code. Here's our school district's posting (scroll to Interim Magnet Teaching Specialist).
Are you part of a professional network? Do you know someone who might be an excellent CS instructional coach at the elementary level? Please help us spread the word!
