Review for Mountain View Los Altos High School Foundation, Los Altos, CA, USA
The MVLA foundation continues to encourage us to innovate and try new things. As I am teaching computer science electives, I have even more freedom to innovate. Between online communities, conversations with colleagues and events such as the Maker Faire, new ideas in tech are never ending. Having a school, a district, a foundation and a community that supports you in trying new, fun, engaging, worthwhile, real-world things in the classroom - who has that?! That is what education should be. Everywhere. I come home pumped and tell my wife about my two or three new ideas in a single day. And I know that the MVLA foundation will hear my ideas, and say "Yeah, that's awesome. You want to make learning more fun, current and interactive? You have new ideas? That's great! Go for it. Here's the money to make it happen."
