This school year has been anything but ordinary. A global pandemic swept through our lives, disrupting it with unprecedented consequences. We were once again reminded of the inequities our students face at home and in their communities. Yet, for the first time in a long time, we couldn't find the answers our students were asking us about the future of the classroom. And in the midst of all this, one superhero teacher from Cheyenne Wells Colorado reassured her class that it's OK to not be OK, and coding with BootUp PD in the classroom could be a new and stress-free way to get through the days of uncertainty.
From childhood to adulthood, we travel down roads that shape our future and sometimes who we are as a person. We meet people along the way that influence our decisions and help craft us as professionals. I recently had the opportunity to sit down with one of these people, an amazing educational leader, Mr. Ted Howard, Chief Academic Officer at Tukwila School District. He is working to change the landscape of education for the better.
At BootUp, there are many brilliant and inspirational women changing the face of education and technology. This Women's History Month, we celebrate the Women at BootUp striving to make a positive change for teachers and students nationwide.
