Initially through storytelling, students will use the Scratch programming language to bring two ladybug characters to life.

About the Instructor

Miss_elizabeth_wiley.png

Miss Elizabeth Wiley

I have been married 23 years and have two children, my son Brennan 20 years old. and my daughter Lillian, 13 years old. January 2020 we decided to homeschool our daughter and haven't looked back. Before moving to the Charlotte/Fort Mill area I was a beginners gymnastics coach.  When we moved to the area in 2004 I was blessed to get hired as a pre-k teacher with Sharon Baptist Weekday School and spent 11 amazing years teaching.  When I was presented the opportunity to teach again and be a positive role model for our youth I had to say yes.
