Tucker Grimshaw - CIty College
I am excited to serve the San Diego City College faculty, staff, and students as an Online Accessibility Mentor. A bit about me: I was born and raised in San Diego and have lived in various places, including Hawaii and Idaho. My academic interests include Universal Design for Learning, disability studies, queer studies, equitable assessment practices, and first-year writing (to name a few).
Online accessibility is essential because I have noticed that voices are missing in academia. One way we can amplify silenced voices is by endeavoring to make our courses accessible to all.
Coaching Hours: Mondays 12pm - 2pm

Kristian Secor - Mesa College
Hi! My name is Kris Secor and I'm your Accessibility Mentor at San Diego Mesa College. I've been a developer and educator for over 20 years now. I started doing a lot of eCommerce in the early 2000's. That's a world where you want everyone to have access to your work or you'll lose money!
That's where I developed a "progressive enhancement" mentality where we target the least functional devices when we build. At the leading college of equity and excellence, this attitude is also a must!
Coaching hours: Tuesdays 3pm - 5pm

Andrew Huang - Miramar College
Dear Miramar family, I’m Andrew Huang (he/him/his) and I am excited to be your Online Accessibility Mentor for the 2023-2024 school year! I teach Computer and Information Science classes at Miramar and am also the faculty advisor for the student club, San Diego Computer Science. I’ve been working in the software industry for 24 years, with the past 15 in artificial intelligence.
After being forced to teach fully online after COVID, I’ve wrestled with technology, learned, adapted, and continue to adapt my courses to support the diverse needs of our esteemed students. I would love to assist in making your online courses accessible.
Coaching Hours: Monday 8:30am-9:30am and Thursday 8pm-9pm
