Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life:

A teacher that made a difference in my life, Dr. Phillip Blake, encouraged me to take AP Computer Science A, even though I had no real prior knowledge about coding. Coding is now something I look forward to learning more about in the years to come.
