There are more than 500,000 open computer science positions without qualified talent to fill them across all industries. As a computer immersion school, we are trying to help ensure our students have access to the necessary education to ensure a successful future for them.
Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS is a program that recruits, mentors, and places passionate technology professionals into high school classrooms as volunteer instructors. These volunteers bring subject matter expertise and will join to teach computer science together. TEALS provides training for both parties, rigorous curricula, and opportunities for students to continue their education outside of the classroom.
After applying and being accepted into the TEALS program, we will offer three courses in the 2019-2020 school year: Computer Science 1, Cybersecurity and Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science Principles.
The Computer Science 1 is based on the award-winning University of California Berkeley CS10 course and is adapted specifically for high schools.
Why am I a good fit for computer science?
Before I started teaching in 2017, I worked in marketing, communications and product development for over a decade. Throughout my graduate studies in communication, I focused on product development and integration of instructional technology in both corporate and university classrooms.
