Why do you enjoy being an instructor at Eleven Fifty?
My absolute favorite aspect of developing and teaching is the human element. Each person has their own perspective and ideas to bring to the tech industry. Teaching allows me to empower and grow the skills of our students who could change their lives and the lives of others through what they create. That’s amazing to me. I feel everyone deserves the opportunity to grow with the age of technology and learn the skills to make their mark on it. Seeing that evolution takes place in each student is why I love being an instructor.

Tell us about your background in Tech.
I attended EFA’s first fully remote full-time Web Development course in the spring of 2020 and then choose to also attend the full-time Software Development immediately after. Upon graduating I became a Learning Assistant at EFA and adored being a guide for others’ tech growth. That has not wavered as I currently enjoy being an Instructor Trainee on my own path of growth to becoming an EFA Instructor.

When did you know you were interested in Tech?
At first, tech was only a way out of dead-end jobs. It was finally my entrance into a career. I came to EFA not knowing anything about code. I never thought that through attending, coding would become a passion. What began as just job skills turned into a never-ending pursuit of self-development and problem-solving. Developing became a rewarding process of proving to myself that I can and I will when I give something the time and practice. It can get tough and take patience, but I’m someone who enjoys that journey of progress and growth.

A fun fact about Kate!
Although I love tech, code, and gaming; my true passion is homesteading, permaculture, beekeeping, and animal husbandry! Being outdoors and in nature is my absolute idea of bliss.
