Hour of Code * 5


Today for Hour of Code I had the opportunity to spend not just an hour but a whole day teaching seventy 5th graders about engineering.

A day of teaching is exhausting. Despite the active participation, keeping them engaged all day left me lightheaded and drained.

Being married to a teacher I've seen first hand how much thought and care goes into their work.

But spending a day in their shoes is illuminating on a whole other level and something everyone should experience to understand just how underappreciated they are.

Thanking them is one thing, but we should be doing so much more.
