Mrs. Sara Gopalan
Welcome to CTE IT Essentials Class at TVHS.
I am excited to teach another year at TVHS. My background education has been Computer Programming, Math and Physics. I have Master’s degree in Physics. I started learning Computer Programming while I was in high school. I am proficient in number of programming languages and platforms.
I have more than 15 years of experience as professional Software Developer for client/ server, web based industries and Software Validation Engineer for pharmaceutical and medical device companies. I am very passionate about getting the next generation of students to be proficient in computer hardware & software because I believe every field requires the work force to have a basic knowledge about computers.
In addition to IT-E class, I will be coaching 2 teams for CyberPatriots Competition. CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program. At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.
On a personal note, I have 2 boys who are in TVUSD schools. I like running. I have done 5K ,10K, 15K, Half marathons and Full marathon races.
I strongly believe in the following quote by Thomas A. Edison:
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
