In Ohio computer science (CS) is allowed to count as a math credit. Any certified math teacher is officially allowed to teach a CS class. That’s old news, but a whole lot of things all fell into place at the same time in a really exciting way this week.
First, my principal has given me tentative permission to teach CS in place of pre-calculus (the 12th grade teacher will take pre-calc). Second, I had a meeting with the CSU computer science professor and our high school/university liaison. They encouraged me to take a CSU class which will train me to be able to teach AP-CS. Third, all of my materials have been ordered for my PiNet computer lab!
So much happening at once. This is really exciting!
