The WeTeach_CS Summit is a 3-day event which educates, empowers, and inspires K-12 CS teachers, advocates, administrators, professional development providers, university instructors, and policy-makers to advance the goal of CS for All in Texas and beyond. Learn more!
Start Your Certification Journey Today!
Sixty percent of all STEM jobs require or involve computing, yet only three percent of Texas High School graduates have taken a computer science course. This is due to limited offerings and a lack of qualified teachers. There are 1.4 million Texas public school students who need YOU to teach Computer Science.
We Can Help Teachers After Certification Too!
Getting certified in CS is the first step. Improving the quality and diversity of CS courses is an ongoing effort. Find tools, curricula, professional development and other resources to help along the way!

Being a Computer Science educator requires continuous learning to keep up with changing technologies and pedagogy. WeTeach_CS helps connect educators with CS Professional Development opportunities to deepen skills, encourage innovation, and build relationships with other educators.
WeTeach_CS would like to give a huge THANK YOU to all the participants, presenters, and partners who made the 2018 WeTeach_CS Summit our biggest event yet! We hope everyone is energized and ready to inspire your students to pursue CS courses as part of their education and to advocate for CS for All in your schools and communities.
Good morning and welcome to day three of the 2018 WeTeach_CS Summit! This might be the last day, but we’re going to pack in as much top-notch CS professional development as possible. And did we mention door-prizes? Because, yes, there will be door-prizes! If you’re sticking around for the WeTeach_CS Deep Dives, then we’ll look forward to seeing you on Thursday and Friday. If you’re heading home at the end of today, then we hope to see you again soon. So, be sure to check out our other CS professional development offerings, both Face-2-Face and Online. We hope you’ve been energized and inspired by this year’s WeTeach_CS Summit and take that energy home with you to pass it along to your students, while advocating for #CS4TX and #CSforAll in your schools and communities.
