Ms. Julie MacLeod
My name is Julie MacLeod. My room is located at w114in West Hall. I am an original Broncos from 2003 when the school opened. I teach in the Business and Technology Department in the CTE here at Vista Murrieta High School. I am an original Bronco and love teaching here. It is truly an honor and a pleasure to teach students and work with my fellow teachers. I love being a teacher getting to teach technology Office Suite Video game Game designing and especially coding. I have taught a variety of math, computers, and business courses here at VMHS.
Currently, I will be teaching our 9th-grade Computers/ICT class and Computer programming and Dame Design Course. I wrote the course for the MVUSD and have to articulate with Norco college for 7 units of college credit for the year. ICT/College and Careers course is a graduating high school requirement. I have written four programming classes that have been approved by the District and the State here at Vista which were a BLAST in the Game Design pathways. In the Video Gaming course, we actually design make, and execute real working games through 2D object-orientated programming GameMaker software and 2D/3D Unity game engine. We learn the game cycle, artwork with the game mechanics to produce in the career market to create our own games. Then we progress into straight programming coding. It is fun and exciting for both all grade levels with girls and boys alike.
I feel very blessed to live, work, and be able to raise my two boys in the Murrieta/Temecula area. I am a beach girl at heart since a grew up in Huntington Beach. My boys and I do escape to the beach whenever when we can. (Sun-Surf-Sand) I do have a very busy household with my two bronco boys. Surf soccer lacrosse is a fall and spring sport for boys. If you see us please stop us and say hello. Love, family, and faith is a very important part of our lives.
I am enthusiastic about coding and technology and I can not wait to meet you this year. There are adventures awaiting you for a great year to meet those challenges head-on with these times.
