I am Teresa Draper and I teach math and STEM at Marsing Middle School. I am finishing up teaching CS in Algebra for the second time this year. I am using it in my STEM class. It has been great for the kids. It challenges them and yet they really enjoy it. I wasn’t sure I could do it at first, but going through the course first myself really helped. I feel like a pro now.
