Meet the CBK Team: Veronica Barrington-Davis
We sat down with one of our newest CBK team members to learn about her non-traditional journey to tech and her experiences as an instructor.
Tell us about your background and your journey to CBK.
Veronica: Thanks for giving me the opportunity to talk a little more about my journey into tech. So, I attended Rutgers University and my background is in mathematics. I got introduced to coding in college, where I took a Python class and a CSS class. While I was there taking programming classes, I understood the material, but didn’t really stick. I didn’t understand enough. At the time, I chose to focus on math instead of tech — but a seed was planted.
After I completed the bootcamp, the Career Services person recommended Coded by Kids, and I was like, “Wow! That would be awesome, because I do love to share my knowledge.” I was a trainer at my other positions and have taught dance for young girls. Sharing my knowledge is very, very important to me. So I decided to give it a try and that’s how I got here.
“I want students to know that there’s room for them in tech and innovation. Whoever you are, there’s room for you to expand.”
You joined CBK recently. How has the experience as an instructor been so far?
Veronica: I started in May 2021 as an instructor-in-training. Most of my time has been focused on reinforcing my programming knowledge and learning classroom management…
