My CSTA Story

I was initially introduced to CSTA in my role as an Ed Farm Learning Innovation Coach, actively preparing activities to promote CSEdWeek. As a former secondary English and History teacher, I swiftly recognized the pivotal role that CSTA played in nurturing my understanding of computer science through its standards, resources, and vibrant community. This newfound knowledge was invaluable as it empowered me to support our Teacher Fellows effectively as they learned how to weave computer science into their curriculum. Having attended the last two CSTA Conferences and the Equity in Action Summit, I found myself consistently inspired by the organization’s unwavering commitment to advancing equity, inclusion, and accessibility within the field of computer science. I continue to lean on the guidance of CSTA to support the development of the curriculum and our Ed Farm Learn Micro-credentials. I am proud to volunteer my time to support the organization’s expansion and ensure future support for CS educators.
