What’s your first and last name?
- Ruth Haynes
What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?
- CTE Business & AP Computer Science Teacher
How are you involved in education?
- I teach Fundamentals of Administrative Technologies, Administrative Technologies II and both AP Computer Science courses. I am on the school leadership team, the AP team, the Academy of Engineering team. I am a member of Computer Science Teachers Association, and the Association of Career and Technical Education. I was recently selected to become a member of the State Department of CTE curriculum team for Fundamentals of Technology to help realign the standards and curriculum requirements for the 20-21 school year.
What does your ideal school or classroom look like?
- My dream classroom would be at least twice the size of my current classroom. The computers would be set up in a U against the walls; we would have a work area for teams and a special area for programming our robots. I would have software that will allow me to see what the students are doing and I could demonstrate on my computer and they can follow along on theirs. The curriculum would be from Cengage and online.
If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
- Since I am on the ODCTE teams for Business course curriculum and Computer Science, I would like to meet with teachers of these subjects to get their input for possible changes to the programs.
