• Dear staff, students, families, and alumni,
     
    We are very excited to tell you about a new program our school will begin during the 2017-18 school year. TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) is a Microsoft Philanthropies program that recruits, mentors, and places passionate high tech professionals into high school classes as volunteer instructors. These computer science experts bring their subject knowledge and will join one of our classroom teachers in a team-teaching model. TEALS provides training for both parties as well as course outlines based on successful college courses.
     
    As we expand our efforts to prepare students for 21st century careers, the School of Global Studies will offer Introduction to Computer Science and AP Computer Science, and the TEALS program is instrumental in supporting our teachers and students as they begin exploring this new and important area.
     
    As part of our partnership with TEALS, we are reaching out to ask you to help us find talented and passionate volunteers to join this program and support our students, teacher and school. The computer science class will be offered first period to ensure that volunteers can get to their regular jobs at a reasonable hour.
     
    If you or someone you know works in the Computer Science or Software Engineering field and would be willing to help us build a successful Computer Science program, please contact Mr. Brian Brochetti, College and Career Success Manager at 216-838-7057 or brian.brochetti@clevelandmetroschools,org.
     
    You can read more about TEALS on their website at http://www.tealsk12.org.
     
    Please help us spread word about this opportunity!We are excited about this opportunity and look forward to hearing from many of you.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Dr. Irene Javier
