Michele Cislo

My Story

Michele Cislo has been an elementary school teacher in Connecticut for the past 32 years. Eight years ago she made the transition to an elementary CS teacher and currently works with over 600 preK – 5 students providing all students foundational skills and concepts in CS. She works diligently to spark interest and inspire students to want to learn more about CS. As a reflective practitioner, Michele constantly evaluates her teaching practice and looks for new opportunities for professional growth. Becoming an ISTE Certified Educator was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of her career. Applying her new learning, she played an integral role in writing her district’s K-5 CS curriculum and is proud of the program that was developed. She is also a Code.org CS Fundamentals Facilitator, Seesaw Certified Educator and a Co-District Facilitator for Connecticut’s Teacher Education and Mentoring Program.
