This thread is for teachers who want to pair up with one or more buddies as they get started learning Computer Science and implementing Code Studio in their classroom.
Please post here to request a buddy or to offer your services as a mentor or small group leader. Keep in mind that buddies can work together in real life (happy hour at the local bar?) or online via email, social media or video chat.
Example post - Seeking a Buddy:
“Buddy Wanted: Seattle
Hi all! I just moved to Seattle and am trying to teach myself the Computer Science basics so I can teach Courses 1-4 to adult learners. I’m looking for a buddy or small group of buddies who want to chat regularly (once a month?) and debrief, preferably over drinks in the SEATAC area.”
Example post - Offering mentorship/coaching
"Need help? I’m your lady.
Hi everyone! I live and work in Seattle and have been teaching Code Studio Courses 2-4 to my students for over a year. I’m more than happy to meet with anyone, virtually or in person, to answer your questions or provide advice. My favorite topic to teach is functions."
It goes without saying, but this thread is for professional networking only. If you’re looking for something less-than-professional please check out craigslist, match.com, tinder etc.
