My experience includes a degree from Caltech in computer science and 16 years working as a programmer at NASA.
I also have 500 hours of training in a method that brings mindfulness to learning strategies, called the Feldenkrais Method. This helps me to be more empathic to the struggles of learning students and see the wisdom of patience.
