I recently joined the Happy Code Club team September 2019. I am currently attending Uconn Stamford and getting my degree in Computer Science and Engineering. I have experience in several programming languages such as Python, JavaScript, Processing, and Scheme. In the past I have worked as a mentor for disadvantaged children and as a camp counselor. While I do have previous experience working with children, this is my first formal teaching experience. I have been learning a lot and look forward to continue learning as I work with the Happy Code Club team.

Hello, my name is Dylan. I grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After High School I enlisted in the United States Navy, where I got my first experience tutoring students with CSADD, a Navy Volunteer group. After spending four years on board the USS Kauffman I honorably discharging from the service. The reason I left the service was to pursue my higher education, which was why I enrolled at the College of Westchester. While in school I have had the opportunity to study computer programming and networking, working with my peers in the PC Doctor program, in which we repaired computers and phones. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to lead classes and help exercise creative problem solving.
