Dear teachers,

The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) and the Kapor Center are surveying K-12 computer science teachers. They want to hear directly from teachers about your experiences, challenges, and what resources would be most useful to you at this time. Having detailed and current information allows policymakers, curriculum & PD providers, State Departments of Education, and other organizations to better understand and meet the needs of teachers. Results will be used to make specific recommendations to improve support for CS teachers. 

Do you know an Awesome MD CS Teacher? 
Nominate them for our Golden Crab recognition award.
