John Martens

Computer Science Teacher

I live in Ontario, Canada and have University Degrees in Business Administration and Education. After starting my career as a Software Trainer for Donovan Data Systems, I went back to school and became a high school teacher. When I started, I quickly moved from teaching Business to Computer Science and have just finished my 23rd year as a Computer Science and Data Processing teacher at the high school level.

Over the years I have taught a wide variety of topics. In software I have taught all the major MS Office programs such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. In programming I have taught Visual Basic, ActionScript / Flash, and Java. I have also taught students how to build and upgrade computers, basic electronics and programming with Lego robotics.

I started teaching online and have a youtube channel called '1houracademy' where I have been sharing some of my classroom lessons with the rest of the world. I have found this to be very rewarding - especially when I receive positive comments from people everywhere. Other teachers have even started using some of my lessons in their classrooms.

I hope to further expand my reach by offering courses on education sites like Udemy.
