Looking for a volunteer for the “Mobile Computer Science Principles' class

Alameda High needs your help!


AHS is expanding their computer science offerings with a new course, “Mobile Computer Science Principles.”   We have the opportunity to participate in Microsoft TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools), a program that recruits, mentors and places passionate high tech professionals into high school classes as volunteer instructors.   The teacher who’s bringing the course to AHS has taken the training and taught it for one semester, but she recognizes that she doesn’t yet have the CS knowledge to help students go beyond the curriculum or rapidly troubleshoot/debug their programs.   So TEALS is asking AHS to recruit individuals with CS backgrounds to assist in this effort and we are  reaching out to the community to help spread the word.  


In a nutshell, volunteers will work with the teacher in the classroom during 1st period for the entire year (the class is 4 days a week). They would also need to participate in teaching and curriculum training over the summer.  If you are interested or know someone who might be, please contact teacher Nancy Read,   


Parent Education Speaker 4/25 @. 6 pm, Asst. D.A., Teresa Drenick on Internet Safety

Our next PTSA meeting will be Tuesday, April 25th at 7 PM in the Media center Pit. 


Please note that Assistant District Attorney for the Alameda County District Attorney's Office, Teresa Drenick, will be speaking prior to our next meeting on April 25th from 6-7 PM in the Media Center Pit. She has a very interesting perspective as Assistant D. A. and knowledge to help guide parents through the ever changing on-line world our students face and often use extensively. She will give safety tips and advice about how to help our children navigate through this challenging environment.
