Jacob Goldsmith has worked in education for nearly three decades as a student instructional assistant and graduate instructor with the Ohio State University and as a teacher, union president, and STEAM coordinator with the Newark Unified School District. Within NUSD he developed AP CS/programming, AP mathematics, and IB ToK/philosophy courses and has authored and self-published curriculum for each of these. He has been a leading participant in working groups focused on DEI and innovative teaching in CS convened by the California Computer Science Project at UC Berkeley and the Alameda County Office of Education. He developed and taught his district's first AP CS course and has grown this into a pilot CS4all program endeavoring to teach programming to 100% of district graduates (pilot 2023, full implementation 2024). Jacob's career has focused on exploring and developing instructional content and methodologies that expand the essential intersection between social justice and rigorous STEAM education.
