Hello world!

Mr. MacKenty, a tall computer science teacher.

My name is Bill MacKenty, and I teach high school computer science at the American School of Warsaw. I grew up on Martha's Vineyard, a beautiful little island off the coast of Massachusetts.

As a lifelong geek I enthusiastically share my passion, energy and expertise about programming and computers. There is nothing more satisfying than watching a kid "get it". I've served as a senior leader in educational technology, and worked for many years in educational technology. What really floats my boat is teaching and coding.

I am a web-application developer, specializing in creating customized web-based applications that provide superb service. I am proficient in creating solutions with PHP, Python, and I am becoming proficient in Javascript. I develop and administrate in the Linux, Apache, MySQL environment, and I am experienced using ExpressionEngine, a superbly secure CMS. I think VSCode is a really wonderful code editor.

I am insatiably curious, devoted to learning, never satisfied, and always looking to improve. I am especially interested in supporting inclusivity in computer science.

I have a special professional interest in games in education, and using games as powerful tools to create meaningful learning. I write about games at balanced gaming where I look for a discerned approach to using games in education. I haven't quite found the right permutation of this yet, but I'm trying.

I'm personally and professionally interested in sustainability including sustainability in energy, food and water. I am interested in camping, bushcraft, games, and being a loving present father and husband. I live in Poland, and love it here.
