Congrats to Mr. Mcloda on two recent achievements:

  • TI STEM Fellow
    Mr. McLoda has been named one of six Dallas ISD math and science teachers honored as TI STEM Fellows !
  • Grant award
    Mr. McLoda was awarded a Junior League of Dallas grant to help fund his robotics course. The title of the project is "Engineering a Bluetooth Personal Fitness Device". His goal is to implement IoT (Internet of Things) as part of his innovative course "Microcontrol Project Laboratory" modeled after both the Media Lab and an EE/CS MIT course 6.115.

A little about myself:

I grew up in Oak Cliff and graduated from the Science and Engineering Magnet in 1995. I earned a degree in electrical engineering and computer science at MIT and a master’s degree in science education from Western Governors University. I moved to Florida where I built robots for theme parks and programmed hardware for satellite TV. I travelled the world while working for three years and have been to over 40 countries. I got married in Vietnam where I lived and taught English for a year. I became a science teacher after coming back to America. This is my eighth year teaching. I teach Robotics, Biology, and AP Environmental Science.

I sponsor the Environmental Science Club, Volunteering Club, and Ping Pong Club.
