    Hi! My name is Terri Cothran, and I will be teaching Fundamentals of Computing to 7th and 8th graders and Impact to 6th graders. 

    A few things about me…I have been teaching for 32 years--ALL at Wren Middle!  I graduated from Wren High School a LOOOONNNGGG time ago! I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Clemson University (Go Tigers!) and my Master’s Degree in Technology in Education. I am married and have three children: Lauren-30, Morgan-28, and Hunter-21, and three dogs. 
    In Impact, students will be introduced to computer science as a vehicle for problem solving, communication, and personal expression. You will explore where computer science exists around you and how you can engage with it as a tool for exploration and expression. Specifically, we will be focusing on problem solving, web development, and animations and games. Students will create a basic web page using HTML code and simple games and animations using Javascript blocks. 

    Fundamentals of Computing is a new curriculum for Wren Middle! Students will receive 1/2 of their high school computer science credit at the end of my class. The course introduces students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenges them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. I'm excited to teach this new curriculum to students. 

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns throughout duration of the class. E-Mail is usually the quickest way to keep in contact with me.
