Ms. Meghan Taylor

Hi! Welcome to my homepage! 
I am very excited to join the Amundsen High School staff this school year!
 
A little bit about myself:
I graduated from Western Illinois University with cum laude honors in 2013. I majored in history education and Spanish. Sadly, I am not able to speak Spanish to the level that I used to. One of my goals for the year is to practice more and speak confidently.
 
Previously, I taught at Rickover Naval Academy for five years where I taught a variety of social studies courses and Exploring Computer Science. 
 
Currently teaching:
Exploring Computer Science
Units:
o Human-Computer Interaction
o Problem Solving
o Web Design
o Intro to Programming
o Robotics
This course is designed to introduce students to a wide range of opportunities in the field of science. technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through an exploration of engaging and accessible topics. It covers how the Internet works, how to analyze big data, how to code to create websites and programs, and how computers impact our everyday lives. Each student will also develop better thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, writing and speaking skills as they become better prepared for college and careers. Furthermore, students will be engaged in several projects to demonstrate the real-world application of computing.
