David Crockett High School

Computer Programming/I.T. Principles/Web Design

Crockett High School Computer Science ProgramStudents learn the foundations of prototyping and coding and master computer science concepts such as variables, functions, methods, arrays and comments. They will practice basic digital literacy skills using Java, JavaScript and Python programming languages and learn how to participate in a blended-learning CS class. Past projects students have worked on include game concepts and design, web design using HTML and CSS, 3D game design using the Unity platform and game design and coding for mobile devices. I am optimistic that next year's program will include a Computer Maintenance course, where students will fine tune their skills at building and repairing computers and manage the many day to day operations of the Chromebook One-to-One program at Crockett.

About your instructor:

My educational focus in high school was Electronics Vocation. I earned a bachelor's degree in English from The University of Texas at Austin but also attended the following colleges: Tulsa Community College, San Antonio College, Austin Community College, UTSA and Huston-Tillotson. My main focus of study is English but I also have a large degree of course work in History and Computer Science. I have also studied Special Education at Huston-Tillotson University.

 Mr. Morgan touring Rome in 2009I have been a professional teacher at AISD since 2006 with Crockett High School, Garza Independence High School and Albert S. Johnston High School teaching Special Education, English 1 pre-AP, English 2, English 3, English 4, Reading Applications, Web Design, Digital Graphics and Commercial Photography. The past several years I have facilitated the Computer Science and Video Game Design classes and this year I'm excited to be teaching Programming 1 & 2 and I.T. Principles. This year's program will expand to include iPhone app design using the Swift language.

My personal interests include travelling, photography, computer programming and web and game design, as well as Longhorns football and San Antonio Spurs basketball. 

This will be my sixth year at Crockett High School and I'm looking forward to yet another successful season with my Cougar family!
