Previously, Miesha has lent her instructional skills at the University of Chicago Charter Schools and taught computer science at the University of Chicago Summer Camps. After teaching the children of Chicago’s elite, she decided to use her teaching and developmental skills building with students who normally couldn’t access that level of instruction. Miesha has taught web development for a City of Chicago funded program geared towards economically disadvantaged teens and youth offenders on the west side of Chicago. Miesha also has served as an elite math and ACT/SAT prep tutor for 12 years.
As a college sophomore at the University of Michigan, Miesha worked on a research project that created math programs for Detroit Public Schools students and fell in love with working to improve the educational outcomes of disadvantaged youth who lacked access to technology. After college, Miesha worked as a quality improvement engineer in the automotive industry. Two years ago she made her first step toward a career in STEM Education, taking on the challenge of teaching herself web design and software development so she could teach this skill to girls. While Miesha loves engineering, she loves inspiring women and girls who may not think that engineering is a career option for them even more.
Most computers with an internet connection will do. I use a Mac in demonstrations but you do not need one.
