I'm a high school Computer Science teacher in Tucson, Arizona. I convince students that Computer Science is more than just sitting by yourself in a cubicle writing code for 8 hours a day. I convince them that hacking doesn't really look like what you see in the movies. I convince them that computer science is multi-faceted and gives them the tools to have an impact on the society around them. I convince them that they should see Computer Science as a viable career that can be personally fulfilling and they should give it a shot.
