James Key

James Key holds a degree in engineering, mathematics, and computer science from Speed Scientific School at University of Louisville. For seven years he held a position as Principle Instructor at New Horizons, a computer applications learning institute. He is married to a third grade teacher, and has a daughter that attends St. Martha School. He enjoys games and puzzles, cooking, and writing software.

"I was a champion on Wheel of Fortune in 2008, and love to play "game shows" both in and out of class with the students."

Q & A with Mr. Key

 

Highlight of the year:

The entire school participates in Hour of Code, and students who want to explore further can attend Coding Club after school.

Passion:

Teaching life skills. Technology is ubiquitous, and I want to see students grow up being able to use it accurately, effectively, and morally.

Favorite part of teaching:

Being able to have fun with them as children, and shape their lives as young adults.

Favorite teaching memory:

Hosting games and giving away prizes to the students at different assemblies throughout the year is one of my favorite things to do.

Favorite thing about St. Martha:

It is a family. Those that I work with are not just co-workers, and the bonds go beyond friendship.

My hope for my students:

To enter high school not only prepared to use technology to learn effectively, but to excel at it.

Fun fact:

I am married to Susan, a teacher at another school. Our daughter, Elizabeth, attends St. Martha. I was a champion on Wheel of Fortune in 2008, and love to play “game shows” both in and out of class with the students. I also love classic video games, and am able to connect that to my teaching when we discuss programming and coding.
