An Inside Look at Being A Computer Science Teacher

Garth Flint is one of my favorite bloggers. Garth teaches computer science in a smallish private Catholic school in Montana. This week he wrote a pair of articles that I REALLY like. In fact I think they are a must read for a lot of people.
If you are the only teacher in a school these articles will help you realize that you are not alone. If you are teacher in a larger school with other CS teachers and a good tech support team you will realize how lucky you are.
Lastly if you don’t know what it is like to be a computer science teacher, don’t understand why and how being a computer science teacher is different from any other teaching job or if you want to understand more about how complicated it is to “create” more computer science teachers you really need to read these articles.
By the way, make sure you read to the last paragraph in the second article. That’s the best part.
