"7"- i M' XED AOC 553 77900-00-00 7T SMALL TOWN pAPERS **C005 2t 7 W COTA ST SHELTON, WA 96564-2263 i BISMARCK - State School Su- perintendent Kirsten Baesler on Jan. 22 announced a new partnership with Microsoft Corp and said she is gauging interest from local superin- tendents and high schools in utilizing a unique program for computer sci- ence instruction. Microsoft will be expanding its Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) program to North Dakota by hiring a full-time, North Dakota-based coordinator, vol- unteering some of its own employees and expert instructors as classroom teachers, and exploring further in- vestments to expand this innovative program for North Dakota high school students, Baesler said during an event at the Bismarck Career Academy and Technical Center. "I want to thank Microsoft for starting this program and investing additional staff resources to support it," Baesler said. "In North Dakota, we are used to planting crops and doing what is needed to bring in a bountiful harvest. Microsoft is offer- ing some top-quality engineering and computer science education seeds for our schools, and I look forward to continue working with them to sup- port these types of programs." In the TEALS program, a volun- teer computer science professional from Microsoft or another industry partner teams up with a classroom in- structor to team-teach computer sci- ence courses. The classroom teacher gradually takes over instruction as she or he gains knowledge of the sub- ject. Baesler said teachers of various educational backgrounds can use Mi- crosoft TEALS both to learn com- puter science concepts and how to teach them. "This program is about problem solving and being creative," Baesler said. "It teaches our students to think rigorously and systematically. It helps to teach the North Dakota values of persistence, tenacity and self-re- liance." The superintendent said Microsoft TEALS is much more than helping [ students, become familiar with tech- i[ nology. 'Computer science is about ~1 creating, technology, rather than just; ![ using it, she said. To use one anal- ii ogy, it is not about driving a car. It is about designing and building a car." Taya Spelhaug, Microsoft's TechSpark manager for North Dakota, emphasized how essential it is for high schools to teach computer science, given that technology affects almost every element of our daily lives. "Learning to code, through Mi- crosoft's TEALS program, will help our students unlock exciting career opportunities and thrive in an in- creasingly digital economy," Spel- haug said.

By Renee Orluck Correspondent The Lady Bucs began a busy week in New England on Monday, Jan. 15, where they fought out a hard, close battle. At the end of quarter one, they were just one point behind, 16-15. They struggled to get their shots to go down and were not boxing out, but were still only down by three when they headed to the lockeroom for the half-time break. The third quarter was more of the same and then Beach tied it up in the fourth with back to back three pointers from Mikayla Paul and Jenna Hilde- brant. "We had plenty of opportunities, but couldn't convert," said coach Mark Golberg. The final score fa- vored the Tigers, 48-43. Thursday night, the Lady Bucs hosted a tough Killdeer team. It was a special treat to have the pep band there playing warm up music and the n ational a nthem. As for the game, things did not begin well and at the end of the first quarter Beach was down 20-11.
