ESC Region 4 WeTeach_CS Collaborative


Ms. Jennifer Wellman
Education Specialist


The goals of the Region 4 Science Collaborative were designed to provide a comprehensive pathway of professional development and experiences designed to increase the number of Computer Science 8-12 certified teachers in our Region. This pathway will also increase the number of Region 4 schools and districts that offer computer science opportunities to students in our Region. Computer Science professional developments will include presentations from Dr. Lasher and Dr. Willis from the University of Houston Clear Lake, Texas Instruments and TXRX. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with other computer science teachers at a variety of conferences. The information gained from professional developments and conferences will be used to develop computer science opportunities to start in their district during the 2018-19 school year.
