In this episode I had a great Swift education conversation with Stacy Sniegowski. After graduating from Purdue University in 2005, with a BS in Mathematics Education and minor in French, Stacy began her career in the Chicago Public School system. Over the next ten years, she worked in the district as a teacher and instructional coach to design learning experiences for K- 12 students and teachers in math, science, engineering, technology and foreign languages. Her training with the New Teacher Center, developed her skills in adult learning, instructional coaching strategies, and mentoring techniques.
For the last two years, Stacy has worked with MobileMakersEdu to support high school teachers to bring mobile app development into their schools and iOS developers to develop their skill sets in instruction. She enjoys working with both educators and software developers from across the US and the globe. To this date, Stacy’s work has advanced the learning of more than 200 teachers and almost 14,000 students.
In her spare time, Stacy works with her husband to run their “creativty clubhouse” business, WholesomeZine, a place for artists to gain 21st century skills to promote their craft. She manages the operations, training, internships and social media for the company, in addition to being a DJ on WholesomeRadio.
I would like to thank Stacy from taking time out of her busy schedule for an insightful and illuminating discussion about developing teachers into Swift programmers and the state of coding with Swift in schools today.
