We are excited to welcome Charlie Cuddy to the team as a Summer Operations Management Apprentice! More about Charlie’s background and his motivation to support the mission and vision of Interface Web School follows:
Charlie Cuddy just finished his sixth year teaching high school math and coaching track and cross country at Omaha Bryan High School. He has helped to design curriculum for the Omaha Public Schools, specifically second year Algebra. Charlie has spent the past couple of summers working with local technology companies in order to stay current with technology trends and implement what he finds in the classroom.
Charlie has been in the Lincoln and Omaha area his whole life; he graduated from Lincoln Pius X High School and received his Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Math Education with an endorsement in Math and Coaching from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2010. Charlie will finish his Masters of Education (Leadership in Teaching and Learning) degree from Midland University (Fremont) this summer, where he researched the impact of teaching computer programming to high school students. He hopes his research will lead to the implementation of a computer programming elective in the near future.
The buzz surrounding the Silicon Prairie, the demand for computer programmers, and Charlie’s desire to constantly learn new things drove him to become a self-taught programmer. This naturally led to his desire to teach his classes and design a unit for his master’s program that taught students the importance of learning to code, and how to do it.
Charlie is thrilled to apply his passion for education with this new-found hobby of coding by working with Interface Web School this summer as an Operations Manager Apprentice. He is most excited about joining the Interface team because of the provided opportunity to work closely with people in the community who want to help others grow individually, within their businesses and simply make Omaha a better place.
Charlie looks forward to working with the high energy and passionate people who make Interface great and who are also extremely reputable at preparing people of all backgrounds for a career in technology. This aligns well with what Charlie hopes to bring to the table: the ability to help individuals transform their lives through education and gain a deeper understanding of technology, all while helping to develop talent in Omaha.
