Karla (Instructor)

Currently based in California, Karla is a student attending Fresno State University majoring in Computer Science. Karla grew up in the Central Valley where unlike the west coast, computer science and engineering classes were few and far between. She strives to impact her community and communities close by to bring technology to students who may otherwise never be exposed to coding and robotics. She hopes to encourage students and give them the tools they need to explore the world of technology because one step inside can lead them to a million possibilities.

Briana (Instructor)

As a Minnesota native, Briana knows what it means to invest in her community. She is a positive and creative problem solver who enjoys learning about new ways to generate and share ideas. With a background in Information Sciences and Web Development, she is excited to help students innovate, grow, and express themselves through their work at Code Hero Academy.

Suzanne (Instructor)

With a background in Elementary and Middle School Education, Suzanne finds joy in helping students "click" with coding! Originally from Lincoln, NE, her tech experience goes all the way back to her high school days when she helped a teacher build a website for her class. It is fun for her to understand how things function behind the scenes. Today she enjoys helping her students have those same opportunities by creating code and seeing it come to life through robotics.

Preparing for the Future is just one step away!
