Summer CS Fundamentals Workshops

I am partnering with Code.org and Teachers Teaching Tech to offer two Computer Science Fundamentals workshops, August 6th & 7th from 8:00am-4:00pm. These workshops will provide teachers with basic understanding of the Code.org curriculum and computer science principles, with the hope that teachers will implement this FREE curriculum into their classrooms this fall. 8 OPI renewal units will be offered, and step-up credit is available. Click the links below to register.



The courses are the same, and you may only take the class once. Please choose the date that works best for you!

Create a Digital Business Card Using Buncee!


I used the creation tool Buncee to make this digital business card to share with colleagues I meet at ISTE 2018! Buncee is super easy to use for creating and publishing, with the ability to add animations, photos, links, videos and stickers. I had so much fun creating this! Buncee has a page to share digital business cards to connect with other teachers. Once you create yours, you can upload it here.
