Simi Basu is in her sixth year at STEM and as a Secondary Computer Science Teacher. She is thrilled to be working with such an amazing group of staff, students and parents. She is really passionate about computer science, technology and cyber security.
Ms. Basu teaches AP Computer Science Principle, Cyber security and Networking classes. She is also the computer Science Department lead and lead for the CyberPatriot club. She will also be leading the Computer Science Honors Society and ecybermission clubs.
She moved to Colorado six years ago from Scottsdale, Ariz. She completed her master’s in Information Technology (IT) and master’s in Business Administration in IT. Before teaching at STEM, she worked with IBM and other software companies for 13 years on different technologies and managerial roles. This experience has helped her to inspire kids to reach further than they think they can and prepare them for jobs that don’t exist yet.
She prefers giving students and teachers real-world projects and scenarios they can imagine and motivate them to try new things and share new ideas. She enjoys creating curriculum that challenges their minds and engages them to their full potential.
Her life outside school revolves around her family. She has been married for 18 years and is the proud mom of two boys and one beautiful dog. In her free time, she likes to work out, travel and spend time with her family.
