Shawn D. Walk
Shawn is the founder of Create2Discover. He has been an educator for over 20 years. Shawn was a 4th/5th grade teacher for 11 years at an elementary school north of Pittsburgh. During his time at that school, he focused on project-based learning and engaging students with real-world tasks that allowed them to see how what they were learning is used in the real world. Shawn developed several robotics and coding programs during his time as a teacher and helped students learn essential 21st century skills in a fun and exciting way. He has an active Pennsylvania Teaching Certification and a Masters Degree in education.
About 7 years ago, he started a company in Pittsburgh that partnered with schools to offer coding, Minecraft, and other creative classes. The company was one of the first organizations in the Pittsburgh region to use Minecraft to create engaging programs for students. He now hopes to take this type of fun and creative learning beyond the Pittsburgh region to students all over the world.
Shawn currently teaches our video game design and coding classes. If your child wants to learn how to create their own video game, Minecraft mod, or Roblox game, click here to view his classes.
