About me
Welcome to my Oxford High School Computer Science Online Classroom

Hi and thanks for visiting,

District Mission Statement

“It is the mission of the Oxford Public Schools that all students will be prepared to enter the 21st Century as globally prepared people with a base in technology, an appreciation for learning, and an understanding of the diversity they will meet each day. Further, the Oxford Public Schools will challenge, educate, and nurture all students by maximizing each child’s ability and potential through programs integrated with the community, industry, and post-secondary schools.”

My name is Mr. James Painchaud although my students usually call me Mr. PC.

This is my second year in the position of Computer Science teacher for Oxford High School, and I am very excited and happy to have been given the opportunity to continue an aggressive, engaging, and challenging Computer Science program for the students and staff within the Oxford Public School District.

Prior to coming to Oxford I spent four years within the Springfield Public School District acting in the roles of a high school Instructional Technology as well as an Instructional Technology Specialist helping teachers in the incorporation of technology into their classrooms.

For three years prior to teaching in Springfield I taught Computer Science and Science - Technology in Ludlow, Ma. , and previous to teaching in Ludlow I taught computer science in Bellingham at their alternate high school for three years, and spent another four years before Bellingham teaching middle and high school students in Worcester.

Before becoming a teacher I worked as a software engineer for many years and have been fortunate enough to watch technology evolve over the past couple of decades.

I hold a Master's Degree in Education with a concentration in Instructional Technology Leadership from Fitchburg State University, and a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Assumption College.

It is my hope that each student and staff member builds a confidence and appreciation for technology and becomes aware of all the opportunities it provides for our young people today.

I look forward to teaching and sharing many learning experiences with all of you this year!

Thanks and have a great year!

Mr. PC
