Michele Lombardi

My CSTA Story

“Like many others, Michele was the only CS teacher at her school when she joined her local CSTA Chapter looking to learn from other CS teachers. The supportive and large-spread community she found turned out to be so much more. Opportunities and connections she made helped her grow and develop the CS program at her school, expand her own knowledge base, and have a built-in support system when she moved cross country.

After attending her first CSTA Conference in 2017, she started volunteering with CSTA including serving as local chapter leadership, submission reviewer, conference committee member, 6-8 strand lead, and now 2025 incoming conference chair. She is so excited to share the CSTA experience with new teachers!”
