My CSTA Story

My first teaching job was as an Instrumental Music teacher at a high school. I have always been techy and had my first programming class in high school. I incorporated as much tech as I could with my music students, but I wanted to do more. I found a high school CS job and needed help. My local CSTA chapter helped me get started and has been a wonderful resource for me over the years.
