Help Teach A High School Computer Science Class
I have written about TEALS here many times. TEALS is a program where software engineers volunteer and support high school teachers who have limited or no computer science background so that their schools can offer computer science, and eventually continue the program without volunteer support. In its third year in NYC, TEALS supports 20 teachers in 19 high schools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx and Queens. Last year, 7 NYC TEALS teachers reached “hand off,” a milestone indicating they can continue teaching independently or with diminished support. To learn more about TEALS, visit their website.
If you are interested in doing this next year (Sep 16-Jun 17), you can attend an info session. The next one is in Brooklyn on Wednesday, May 11th:
May 11th, 2016 6:30 – 8:30pm
Williamsburg Preparatory High School
257 North 6th Street (Brooklyn)
Many AVC readers have done this over the last three years. And I’ve heard from many of them that it is a very rewarding way to give back and help build a more diverse pipeline of software engineering talent here in NYC. I hope you will consider doing it this year.
At 5o years old, I’m teaching myself practical computing and subsequently will tackle CS. Thanks to the AVC community for putting me on the right path a few weeks ago. I definitely see the value and need for this in our society.As well, I now subjectively understand the value you’ve built with AVC, as yesterday, I’ve engaged much and derived a lot of value personally from all the various views, particularly the ones that were divergent to mine, as you’ve pointed out many times.This is a useful tool for entrepreneurs and others to put their thumb on the pulse of the state of things in the Tech sector.Finally, I promise I won’t be routinely high jacking the first comment 🙂

Off topic alert…Here’s an appropriate Monday morning song. Little known written by Prince.. Enjoy…https://youtu.be/47v-Zm-9Wgg
I can just as well imagine him singing it — and pompously so, I might add, and I mean that in a good way.
the period of mourning is over – RIPP. the period of marketing has begun.
And he’ll generate more money now than ever.
I didn’t know Prince wrote that song. Wow. Sorta like finding out a song you like was by the Bee Gees.As long as we are forking, here is the Bangles version of same that I really like:https://www.youtube.com/wat…Susannah Hoffs is a member of the tribe. Here is that movie that she was in .. her mother was the director:https://www.youtube.com/wat…
bit of a slow day. any thoughts so far on the 6P?
That’s a great program. I wished something like it was available in Toronto.

Paul Robert Cary:The conspiracy theorist range from those amoung us who are considered highly educated (we beg to differ) that have diminishing reality issues to those who are financially disenfranchised seeking an excuse for their financial difficulties. Historically heirs to fortunes earned have financially supported many conspiracy campaigns that refuse to die with the myths and legends.Interesting history regarding conspiracy theories. Would promote the intelligent to steer clear.http://theweek.com/articles
I didn’t know it but then again that’s me. Ever since you posted the youtube link here of Warren Zevon several years ago I’ve learned more about music than I ever knew before in all my years.Anyway, not widely known is that he had, um, “money problems”:http://www.tmz.com/2016/04/…The Post story is even more absurd and it’s based on the TMZ story:http://pagesix.com/2016/04/…So funny. Being worth 150 million is considered a problem and being cash strapped.I wonder what it is like to be a guy like Prince. Where everybody is feeding off of who you are and what you can do for them.
Without data, that’s just an opinion. And so we’ll just go with my opinion 😛
TMZ is your source?
Miss the air quotes?
