Hello from the midwest! I am Karen Raymond and I teach in Carroll, Iowa. I will be teaching a new course we are offering called Computer Science Principles to 10-12th grade students. I also teach Geometry. I have taught programming in the past but it has been a while so I am “relearning” the subject. This will be the first course of its kind offered here for years so I am excited that our principal, technology integrationist and I were able to add the course to our curriculum. My challenge will be to stay ahead of some of my students who are the type to code just for “fun” and balance that with other students that will struggle. I don’t want to hold them back OR move them along too fast!
