Mr. James Hewitt

Hello!  I am proud to return to my alma mater and with great excitement and a genuine desire to share knowledge and enthusiasm for computer science.    
I am the new AP Computer Science teacher at Hillsboro High School. This marks an exciting new chapter in my career, as it is his first year teaching in a public school. I have a wealth of experience from a diverse background in the computer science industry, including programming, software development, and management. Furthermore, I have extensive international experience, having worked in various countries, bringing a global perspective to my teaching.
A little bit about me personally:  I have been married to my lovely wife, Kelly, for over thirty years. Together, we have four children: a son named Jordan, a daughter, Natalie, and twin boys, Ryan and Riley. Our family extends with a beautiful granddaughter and two adorable Yorkiepoo dogs: Sulley and Sammie. 
My primary goal is to inspire and educate my students in the field of computer science, equipping them for successful careers and nurturing a passion for technology.
