Lev grew up in Brooklyn and is a graduate of New York City schools, in which he has now taught english language arts, math and computer science for over 15 years. Instead of using numbers, equations and other mathematical models to teach programming, Lev uses stories, characters and action to model digital principles and behaviors, opening up coding to all types of learners. He is looking forward to connecting technology learning with all other classes at UA Maker.
Lev graduated with honors in English from Oberlin College and holds a Master of Arts from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program. He has taught in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan and can be relied upon to play either frisbee (outside) or board games (inside) after school.
