I have been studying interactive design since college. I love the challenge of teaching students everything from 3d animation to object oriented programming. My favorite subject is currently game design. I currently teach high schoolers at the prestigious Meridian Technical Charter High School. If a high school freshmen can learn to design, code, and animate, then so can you!
