Founder | Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS
TEALS is an industry wide volunteer program that helps high schools build and grow sustainable computer science programs through team teaching with classroom teachers and tech industry volunteers. TEALS teams teach students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to learn CS at their school. The classroom teacher gradually takes over the responsibilities of teaching CS as they master CS content and pedagogy, TEALS creates a ripple effect by empowering them to impact thousands of students over their teaching careers.
