Conferences, Professional Development workshops, etc.   
Talking about my work  / CS Advocacy
During the last few years, I do more than teaching in my California classroom.  I also share my teaching experience at conferences and panels and anywhere there is an interest in the topic of CS education.  I share specific lessons that worked well, student work and as well as what I have learned while teaching coding to thousands of students over the last 8 years.  I conduct professional development workshops both for school districts on request and as part of Krause Center of Innovation, Foothill college's CS professional development programs.
