Introduction Transcription

I can’t say it enough: teachers are amazing. They continuously juggle SO many jobs: planner, demonstrator, lecturer, emotional resource, mentor… and that’s just to name a few!

Today, hear my conversation with one of those incredible teachers. Vicki Davis is an IT Director, so she juggles all those same jobs I mentioned earlier, but on top of that, she is also a blogger, speaker, author, YouTuber, and podcaster under the name Cool Cat Teacher.

Vicki started her blogging journey because she wanted to create a relevant and engaging lesson for her students. Then it just… stuck. Hundreds of thousands of subscribers and followers later, Vicki joins me to share her words of wisdom for teachers who are starting to learn computer science. And after you listen to the interview, find links to Vicki’s work in the show notes.
