Q. What are your family’s hobbies?
A: They are reading, sports (tennis/soccer, swimming), board games, and cooking.

Abby & Elliot’s Parents’ Answers
Q. How did you find out about CodeWizardsHQ?
A: I saw the advertisement from the school district’s webpage.
Q. Do you have a specific experience or story you’d like to share that your student has shared related to your classes at CWHQ?
A: Caleb (the oldest) started the class first and really enjoyed it, but, when Abby and Elliot started, our family was going through a difficult time. I was diagnosed with cancer last year and my husband was out of a job for two years. We really appreciate the scholarships CodeWizards has provided us.
Q. How do you think coding is going to impact your family in the future?
A: We think coding will be as common as literature, and not knowing coding will make you illiterate.
Q. What goals or dreams do you have around coding for your children?
A: Caleb would like to major in computer science.
Here is what their teacher, Margaret Choi, had to say about them:
“Abby and Elliot brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to class. They are both very smart and creative, which you can see in their projects. Abby had a running theme throughout hers and Elliot incorporated his hobbies and interests. I really enjoyed seeing them help and support each other to be successful.”CodeWizardsHQ Teacher, Margaret Choi
