You may have seen a new face on the second floor, and students are pleased to welcome a new teacher. Her name is Ms. Nicholas and she teaches Creative Computing, Robotics, AP Computer Science A, and Intro to Computer Science at Wethersfield High School.
Creative Computing is a class that focuses on the basics of computer science while intro to computer science goes at a faster pace. Robotics focuses on robots and the more physical aspect of building robots. AP Computer Science A is a full year class that focuses on java coding.
This is her first year teaching. In the past, she worked as a substitute teacher for three years. She has been in the technology field since she was 19 years old. She got a job in graphic design for 17 years and is very experienced. She also learned IT and computer languages. She turned to teaching because, “I want to share my knowledge and my passion for computer science with everyone.”
She’s excited to be part of the WHS family. She said, “It just seems like a great place to start my teaching career, and now I don't think I ever want to leave.”
She has been all around the technology field, doing graphic design, web design, IT, and learning coding languages before she began teaching for the 2021-2022 academic year. Teaching was a way for her to share her passion for computer science. When asked about what her favorite part of the job, she responded with, “the students”
One student in her class said, “She lets me work at my own pace.” It allows the student to work without constraints and allows students that need extra instruction to be able to get that help.
See her in room 219 for any more information on computer science and robotics!
