"I am exceedingly grateful to Oracle Academy for providing this scholarship to help me attend the CSTA conference. As a first year teacher, I am looking forward to the support, ideas, and guidance I will be able to take from the conference as I revise my curriculum and develop an additional course this summer...Oracle Academy's support means that more teachers will have the means and inspiration to bring this exciting and important subject to more students. Thank you!" —Emily, Ravenscroft Middle School
