Computer Science and Catholic Schools
By: Melissa Pavloff
Arielle Gannon began her teaching experience at Juan Diego Academy in Mission, Texas, where she spent two years as a member of ACE 22 teaching AP physics, AP calculus AB, and robotics. Recognizing the importance of the technology sector in the U.S. and global economies and the shortage of computer science professionals, Arielle dedicated herself to developing a computer science curriculum on a wider scale. She notes the important role of computer science programs in educating future leaders of industry and commerce.
After her time as an ACE Teacher, Arielle completed Notre Dame’s ESTEEM program, where she learned how to structure and set up her own company. She recently established teacherCODE, a company that uses the theory and practicality behind coding to equip teachers in other disciplines to teach computer science in grades K-12.
