Lindy

Check out how Lindy went from being a substitute teacher to a key player in EdTech!

πŸ™β€β™€οΈ Before SheCodes

Meet Lindy πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ! An adventurous spirit from the USA who lived all over the world, from Germany to Kentucky, she has seen it all! Living in California, Lindy spent her days as a substitute teacher in both public and private school systems, where she demonstrated remarkable flexibility and adaptability, covering a wide range of subjects 🍎.

"I wanted to learn a new skill beyond my educational and humanities training, taking my eye for detail and analytical thinking to the next level in a math, computational-based field. The ability to code and think 'like a programmer' is so invaluable today, and it has changed how I work and see the world! πŸ‘Ύ"

Despite enjoying her teaching role, Lindy wanted a new challenge in her life. πŸ’ͺ Motivated to improve her analytical thinking and detail orientation, she embarked on a journey to master coding β€” an invaluable skill in today's digital age.

That's when she stumbled upon SheCodes' 60-minute coding class, the last sign she needed to start her coding journey. 🌟

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Her SheCodes Experience

Guided by SheCodes Instructor Matt, whom she praises as a fantastic instructor, Lindy navigated through her coding lessons with enthusiasm and dedication. πŸ™Œ The ability to connect and seek assistance from fellow SheCoders in the Slack Channels provided her with an invaluable support network.

β€œMatt is a great instructor, and being able to ask for help from fellow online peers was fantastic! πŸ˜Žβ€

She especially appreciated the structure behind the SheCodes Workshops. πŸ’» Each successful project submission was a step forward, especially when receiving positive feedback from the team, confirming that her projects worked and achieved their intended objectives.

This process was not just about learning to code but about being part of a community that celebrates every small victory, keeping her motivated and focused on her path. 🎯

πŸ™‹ How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

SheCodes marked a turning point in Lindy's life offering her the chance to pivot from her teaching career to a role that merges her passion for education with the tech world πŸ‘©β€πŸ’».Β 

β€œI realized I had new knowledge inside of meβ€”analytical, coding-based knowledgeβ€”that I could use to better help both my students and my colleagues by working with software and managing the programs we need to keep our school moving forward.β€œ

Thanks to the skills and confidence gained through SheCodes, Lindy has embarked on a rewarding journey in Education Technology (EdTech). Lindy applies her coding knowledge daily as a Data Administrator for a private school's management system. Her role involves managing software for the school, handling data intake, and even serving as part of the IT department. However, her involvement doesn't stop there; she also oversees the substitute division of teachers, using programming solutions to streamline processes and improve efficiency. πŸ–₯οΈπŸ“š

β€œThe skills I learned in SheCodes and 'thinking like a programmer' - a SheCodes programmer! - have helped me in this new role. I help work and manage the school's software, intake and manage information, and work in the IT department... A little of all sorts of tech!”

Lindy is a testament to the transformative power of coding education. By thinking like a SheCodes programmer, she has been able to leverage her newfound skills to impact her school significantly. Her journey from a substitute teacher to a key player in EdTech exemplifies how coding can open doors to exciting and fulfilling careers. We're Incredibly proud of her achievements and the innovative ways she's she's using her coding skills! 🌟

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’Ό Advice to Future SheCodes Student

Lindy has some empowering advice for those considering the leap into coding with SheCodes. Her message is clear and encouraging: "You can do it - you go, girl! πŸ’ͺ" She believes that learning to code is not just about acquiring a new skill; it's a transformative journey that changes how you approach work, interact with data, and perceive technology in our modern world.

For Lindy, the key to success is simple: "Just get coding!" She urges future students not to underestimate the impact of coding on their professional lives.

β€œCoding just might land you a job you better fit and enjoy more because you can think like a programmer. You can do this! Just get coding! πŸ˜€β€

Her own journey is a testament to the doors that coding can open, leading to fulfilling roles that align more closely with one's skills and interests.

We’re really proud of you, Lindy! πŸš€


πŸŽ‰ Lindy’s SheCodes Basics Testimonial:
β€œI enjoyed being a part of SheCodes Basics! Matt is a great instructor, the program is flexible, and I can see my progress in even just 3 weeks - plus, it was fun! I never thought I would enjoy coding like I do now, and I definitely have SheCodes to thank for that. I've loved the SheCodes workshop and I would totally recommend it!”

πŸŽ‰ Lindy’s SheCodes Plus Testimonial:
β€œA wonderful and extensive workshop to learn how to build a much more applicable and real-world relevant app, as taught by Matt! I'm thankful for the skills and the lessons. I've learned so much and would absolutely recommend SheCodes!”
