By Becca Elenzil (she/her), Instructor 

Greetings! I’m Becca and I’m super excited to join Ada as a classroom instructor.

I’ve worked as a middle and high school math and computer science teacher for the last five years, most recently at the Bush School in Seattle. At Bush I taught a number of different courses, primarily in Python, including Fundamentals of CS, Game Design, Data Structures & Algorithms, and Data Science. I also taught creative coding electives including Apps for Good using’s App Lab and Programming for the Visual Arts using the JavaScript library p5.js.

I first learned to code while studying mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan. I went on to earn my Ph.D. in Bioengineering at UC Berkeley where I studied the neuroscience and psychology of human motor control.

I live in Madison Valley with my partner Orion and our 2.5 and 6 years old kiddos, Viva and Magnolia. We can usually be found exploring all of Seattle’s best playgrounds by foot, bike, and scooter!
