Teaching Introduction to Coding & Nuvux Design Studio at U.S. Grant K-8, San Diego, California

Hello there and welcome to my web page. I'm John Snyder, and I teach Nuvux Design Studio, Art Making and Introduction to Coding at US Grant UTK-8.

I couldn't imagine a better place to be a student or staff member. The community that encompasses our school is kind, welcoming and attentive. The teacher's and support staff are experienced and professional to the hilt. To crown that advantage, our leadership strives for constant improvement and accessibility for all stakeholders. The teaching cohort of our school has developed and implemented academic programs that are both germane and rigorous for all students.

Our school has a diverse and vibrant student population that makes our school family accepting and warm. With that in mind, welcome!

Something for your brain to chew:

"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you" -Pablo Picasso
