Krista Liss-Stoume’s desire is to work collaboratively to help students and teachers develop the tools to become productive, lifelong learners in an ever-changing world. She is very passionate about Career and Technical Education and in 2016 fell in love with computer science after attending her first CS summer workshop at the University of Delaware. Since then she has participated in and presented at several computer science professional development events, including Partner4CS, CS PD Week, InfoSys Pathfinders Summer Institute, Delaware CS Summit and the Delaware Pathways Conference. She currently teaches business and computer science at Springer Middle School. Prior to this school year, Krista was the high school computer science pathway teacher at Odyssey Charter School, teaching ECS, AP CSP, and AP CS-A. In this role she also served as the Department Chair for the Computer Science & Business Department, and Team Leader for the high school electives team.
