KidsTek staff Courtney Hermes is beginning her second school year as an instructor with us. This year she will be working at elementary schools in Aurora.
Courtney says “I love working somewhere that I can truly make a difference. It’s so rewarding to see students learning skills that will help them succeed in the future.”
She says she especially loves teaching programs that the students can use to create music. “There are programs that are simple enough for elementary kids to use that allow the students to create and edit their own mixes. It lets them be creative, and I think it also gives them an idea of the wide variety of ways they can use computers and technology.”
Outside of KidsTek, Courtney spends a lot of her time dedicated to music. “I’m a musician– I play bass, piano, guitar and I sing. I’ve played in several bands and I’ve also taught beginner piano lessons & music theory.”
Courtney likes the fact that KidsTek focuses on working in schools where they are especially needed. “It also seems like KidsTek is continuously working to improve, by learning new skills to teach the students.”
Thanks Courtney, for all of your hard work. We appreciate you!
