It's hard enough teaching a subject that no one in your building understands, and even harder if you are a new teacher. This session will outline strategies to help teachers starting out with computer science find and share resources and build a support network. Other topics to be discussed include how to make a grass roots effort to highlight your successes in a way that your administrators can understand and appreciate, as well as strategies for boosting your enrollment and awareness of the subject at the school. Hints on building a classroom library, dealing with diverse learners, and how to manage the need for frequent assessment during larger assignments. Also, check out her blog at
