Finally, our computer Science and technology teacher will have a wide knowledge of digital trends, memes, and social media platforms and be  a creator and digital visionary as well as  an organizational mastermind. The computer science teachers teach required computer literacy courses in third and fourth grade as well as a growing number of elective coding and tinkering classes and lead workshops in digital fluency. This person may be asked to help a student build a card-dealing robot or to discuss how cloud storage works as well as the inner workings of TikTok. This is a position for a teacher who enjoys variety and is firmly ensconced in the world of digital creation.
