TECHSTART EDUCATION FOUNDATION
August 31, 2010
I started out with a passion for teaching computer science because of the opportunity to really really get kids to THINK! However I had not much background in this field or how to teach it. There is no other venue that offers such quality teacher training in the technology, and more importantly, the pedagogy and classroom management of teaching technology in K-12. Now that I am retired, I have a great opportunity to continue and expand on TechStart's influence here in Oregon.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
... getting the support I needed to generate quality classroom experiences for my students. Also in professional networking. Technology teachers often operate as the only one in a building, so who do you go to to talk about the "glitches" that occur?
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

Volunteer & I have been a participant, a presenter, an organizer, and a volunteer, and am now a Board Member. What a great opportunity to give back to a cause that helped my career in the most meaningful way.
