CS Teaching Excellence Award
Congratulations to Maria Camarena, winner of a 2020 CS Teaching Excellence Award. The Computer Science Teachers Association bestows this annual award on CS teachers who inspire students to explore the computer science field; engage students in learning rigorous standards-aligned, computer science content; and broaden participation of underrepresented students in computing. Maria joined MƒA Los Angeles in 2019, as part of our second cohort of Master Teachers in Computer Science. We extend our warmest congratulations to Maria on this achievement.
