Alison Childers

Developer and Educator


I'm an entry level developer looking to land my first development job. Being a former teacher, I may have an unusual skillset, but I have many transferable skills. I have already worked with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript as well as learned some React, Bootstrap, jQuery, and Google Apps Script. I've put these into practice on several projects in my portfolio linked above, and I'm particularly excited to share my GroupCheck app for teachers, which has been used by over 350 people since launching 8/11/22.

But even more than my coding skill, I am a lifelong learner who's always hungry to learn more. Having a math mind, I'm used to persevering with puzzles, and coding is just a giant puzzle. I love working in a collaborative environment and know I would be an asset to any team.
