Volunteer to Teach High School CS Without Quitting Your Day Job - Kevin Wang, TEALS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do we solve the problem of shortage software engineers and lack of CS courses in American high schools?  Roll up your sleeves and do something about it!  Come and learn how you can help solve this problem.

TEALS (Technology Education And Literacy in Schools) is a grassroots program that recruits, trains, mentors, and places high tech professionals from across the country who are passionate about computer science education into high school classes as volunteer teachers in a team teaching model where the school district is unable to meet their students’ CS needs on its own.  TEALS works with committed partner schools and classroom teachers to eventually hand off the CS courses to the classroom teachers. The school will then be able to maintain and grow a sustainable CS program on their own.
