I’m Jake Baskin, Executive Director of the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) in Chicago, where I work to make sure every K-12 computer science teacher has a community they can rely on.

I got my start studying computer science at Swarthmore College, taught high school computer science at Lindblom Math and Science Academy, and did outreach and government affairs work at Code.org. When it’s warm enough outside I like to ride my bike along the lakefront, go to White Sox games, and keep meaning to write more poetry.

You can find me on twitter @jakebask, on linkedin, or by email.
