Malow Junior High has an exciting opportunity to offer more computer science (CS) next year. We are investing in our students by partnering with Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS to add a course to build and grow our CS program, which currently includes Computer Science Discoveries I and II. There are more than 500,000 open computer science positions without qualified talent to fill them across all industries. We are trying to help ensure our students have access to the necessary education to ensure a successful future for them.

Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS is a program that recruits, mentors, and places passionate technology professionals into classrooms as volunteer instructors. These volunteers bring subject matter expertise and will join Mrs. Paquette to team teach. TEALS provides training for both parties, rigorous curricula, and opportunities for students to continue their education outside of the classroom.

We will offer “Introduction to Computer Science” which is based on the award-winning University of California Berkeley CS10 course and is adapted specifically for students in grades 9-12. As a TEALS partner school, we are asked to assist with volunteer recruitment from the computer science and software engineering fields to team-teach these courses with our teachers. Malow will hold the course first hour (8:10-9:08 am) to permit the volunteers to make any necessary schedule adjustments.

Please help--if you or someone you know works in the computer science or software engineering field and would be interested in making a difference in our students’ future success, please contact me at (586)797-3500. You can read more about TEALS on their website at
