What teachers say about Mike's workshops
"This was an AMAZING workshop! Mike was an excellent facilitator and seemed very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the Code.org curriculum. The session was well paced, kept my attention and provided a lot of time and space to brainstorm, session plan and share best practices with other educators. I am very excited to bring this back to my school and my students!"
"The workshop was well organized and eye-opening. I went home with very different ideas about how to approach the teaching of the lessons. The knowledge I gained was so valuable because the experience of being involved in the lessons, both as a teacher and a student, provided real insight as to how things might really play out in the classroom."
“Mr. Harvey’s passion for the content of this workshop was contagious. I learned a great deal and feel empowered to share this learning with students.”
