CS/Math Instructor, Wicomico High School
I would say one of the biggest challenges in Computer Science is finding the right resources and curriculum. In the CS world things change and update very quickly and resources don’t always keep up. The first curriculum I was given had links to resources that were not even live websites anymore. This however led to one of my biggest successes and that is connecting with a community of teachers that have been able to help me find everything that I need. From my fellow teachers in Wicomico County that let me shadow them my first year to get a sense that I was doing something right and sent me full folders of great PPTS, to the fellow teachers at CSTA-MD that have encouraged me and shared resources with me, I have always had support. They have pointed me to a wealth of resources online through the various coding websites, videos, and tutorials. If you feel like you are weak in an area, I guarantee there is a resource out there to help you! Just ask a fellow teacher and they will point you in the right direction!
