As members of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Education Council, I have known and worked closely with Dr. Kaczmarczyk since 2007 on various computer science education and policy endeavors of national scope. In particular, she served as the researcher and writer for the ground-breaking ACM Education Policy report, “Rebooting the Pathway to Success: Preparing Students for Computing Workforce Needs in the United States.” This report contains empirical data from all 50 states, and served as key evidence to effect a pivotal change in U.S. national policy about computer science education. With her strong interdisciplinary background in computer science, and science education, along with her many years of research and evaluation experience, Dr. Kaczmarzyk is distinctively qualified. I highly recommend Dr. Kaczmarczyk, and welcome the opportunity to work with her expert consulting firm again!
