What do you enjoy most about your work?
I very much enjoy getting to talk and form relationships with the students. They love to share about what’s going on in their weeks, and I get to share a little too! I also enjoy solving challenging pieces of code or builds alongside students and encouraging them to think hard!

What have you learned in your time on our team in your position(s)? How has this helped you personally or professionally?

“I learned how to be better at multitasking and being quick on my feet. This has helped me in the center to be attentive to multiple students and to make sure [no one ever feels] unheard. This has also helped in other areas such as school, since I have so much to do and manage.”

We love working with Mr. Alan and our inspirational team. We look forward to supporting his bright future both in and out of the classroom and STEM Center!
