Donna Thomas

I currently teach game design & development, website design, and computer programming in C++, JAVA and C# at Sherwood High School. I am also contracted to write the computer science curriculum for the Multimedia Interactive Technology pathway for MCPS. Previous to my teaching of high school for the past 4 years, I bring 26 years of high tech industry experience working at firms like Lockheed Martin, Boeing, IBM, CSC, and Honeywell with increasing levels of responsibility. I also have taught at Montgomery College and Hood College as an adjunct professor and owned and operated a IT telecommunications firm for 4.5 years. I hold 4 degrees and am currently pursuing a doctorate level of study at University of Baltimore. I have former students at Carnegie Mellon, Drexel, MIT, University of Maryland, WPI, Georgia Tech and Rennaselaur and some are working in the gaming industry locally as well as the firms mentioned above.

This is my third year with the Global Game Jam, having previously mentored successful teams at previous jams. This year, I will be serving as a judge for this event at this location.
