Here are a few important things we wanted to share with you!
From your Board:  Ramping up to our February meeting and a call for you!
A moment of support goes out to our semester teachers restarting the school year this January.  👨‍🏫👩‍🏫.  It's the turning point in our school year.  The days are getting longer again, and April break is basically right around the corner.  YOU CAN DO THIS!  Remember, this bulletin comes from front line teachers like you.  We are you and we support you.  In this issue we'll do just that by hyping up our February chapter meeting and give you an opportunity to contribute to the cause!
In this Bulletin:  February Meeting + How you can get involved.

  • Great for all grades!  MicroBit has made great strides in creating a classroom environment which does not require student logins, is age friendly, and is as compatible with most devices!!!  Join MicroBit's Head of Partner Engagement, Katie Henry, as she shows us how MicroBits (physically or virtually!) can fit into your classroom!

Chapter Love
We're looking for YOU to contribute!
Do you have an awesome success story?  Did your hard work pay off?  How great was that last Computer Science event you did go?  We want to hear from you!  Our site has a section for Stories and it's a little sparse.  We'd love to make it a platform for you to share your successes, concerns, and passions.  
How you can contribute:
  1. Write up your story!  Keep it under 1000 words.
  2. Include a photo or two.  Images really tell the story and ensure any photo with students is permissible to share.  
  3. Send it to any Board member for us to publicize.
Do you have a lot to say?  Want to be a regular editor?  Perhaps this is a place for you!
ImportantEnsure any student photos contain only students who you have approval publicizing.  
Remember, your Connecticut Computer Science Teacher's association loves you!
