According to a recent study by Gallup and Google, it is estimated that 75% of US high schools offer no form of computer science education. TEALS is working to lower that number across the country and here in Texas!
TEALS partners with high schools to develop sustainable computer science programs by placing tech industry volunteers in a 1st period classroom alongside a dedicated high school teacher to co-teach computer science courses. Teachers working with TEALS are able to learn collegiate based computer science curriculum with yearlong imbedded support and take over the course within two years.
TEALS is looking for volunteers in Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas to be in-class support for Texas high schools. Volunteers throughout the state are encouraged to apply also as remote opportunities are available. An ideal TEALS applicant has a background in computer science (either professionally or educationally) and either experience or a great interest in education.
Volunteers receive summer training, all class related materials, collegiate-based curriculum, community activities, and yearlong support. You can apply to participate by going to www.tealsk12.org/apply.
