Welcome to Computer Science 2018-2019!
My name is Ashley Pederson and I am returning to Westgate for my second year! This is the start of my sixth year as a computer science teacher as I previously taught four years in Central America. I am beyond excited to start a fresh new year with our Westgate students and we have a lot of new exciting projects coming up!
