By being an online school, BlockSchool can hire world-class teachers available at the times you need them. All of our teachers are native-English speakers, have experience teaching kids, and know how to code. Every teacher must pass our rigorous interview process too.
Due to our high bar, we only hire ~5% of the teachers who apply.
I grew up in Menlo Park California and currently go to the University of Washington to study Applied Mathematics. I have been coding for about five years and work primarily in Matlab and SQL now. Growing up, I loved expressing creativity through LEGOs. I really enjoyed the structure and symmetry that they offered and I see a lot of creative parallels that can be accessed through coding. I think coding doesn’t always have to be a rigorous activity (though it certainly can be). In my free time I like to hike, play sports, read and enjoy music.
