Math and basketball have been a passion for Delmar Wilson, but while working on his doctoral degree in 2013, he realized there was a gap in diversity in the computer science field. That is when he asked his school to open an AP CS Principles class. Mr. Wilson has also started the Computer Science National Honor Society and is also part of the teacher cohort for the 2022-23 Equity Fellows from CSTA.
Delmar Wilson has been a public school educator for seventeen years, where he has taught mathematics, AP Computer Science Principles, and Cambridge Thinking Skills at Miami Springs Senior High. In 2010 and again in 2021 he was named one of three outstanding African American educators chosen statewide for the Governor's Black History Month Excellence in Education Award Contest. Mr. Wilson was nominated by their peers and students, and was chosen for his contributions to education in Florida. He has also taken charge of the College Impact After-School Prep College Program at his current school, Miami Springs Senior High. Aside from being a teacher, Mr. Wilson is also the Mathematics Department Chair, ESSAC Chairperson, Union Steward, and Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach.
As Mr. Wilson began working on his doctorate degree in 2013, he came to the realization that there weren’t enough minorities in computer science. He started the AP Computer Science Principles at his school, and initially recruited his ninth graders; none had ever dreamed of taking an AP course or even computer science. Over the years, this course has become a student favorite and last school year he started the Computer Science National Honor Society. One of Mr. Wilson's all time favorite quotes is “If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” by John Dewey. Mr. Wilson believes as teachers of the 21st century, we have a commitment to ensure that we are effectively teaching our students to prepare them to be future leaders. As a veteran teacher, Mr. Wilson continues to push CS forward by utilizing his CS Honor Society to expose students to Computer Science during Computer Science Week. 
We are very proud to have such an outstanding teacher in our community. CSTA Miami would like to thank current CSTA Equity Fellow Mr. Delmar Wilson for his amazing work and contributions to education.
