Coding with Kids

Introduction: In December 2013, Coding with Kids founders Marek Brejl and Jitka Brejlova volunteered to run the "Hour of Code" at their children's local schools in Redmond, Washington. Going from classroom to classroom, they enjoyed coding with over three hundred 4th and 5th graders throughout the Computer Science Education Week.

What followed was a humbling validation of Marek's vision for an after-school coding academy. Over 200 thank you cards were received from the kids with requests to come back soon. By the end of the week, over 80 kids were registered for future after-school classes. Coding with Kids was born.

In early 2014, Coding with Kids founders set up first after-school coding clubs at their children's schools. Fast forward five years and hundreds of Coding with Kids instructors are bringing awesome tech experiences to thousands of aspiring coders around the US, both in person and through live online classes.

Break the Norm Leadership

Introduction: Welcome to Break the Norm Leadership! This is Rachel Saathoff and I am a certified John Maxwell Coach that primarily focuses on developing strength-based leaders because I believe "everything rises and falls on leadership." I work with business leaders and teams to "Break the Norm" of what it means to be a traditional leader.

After graduating from The Art Institute of Portland with a Bachelor's degree in Advertising, I started my first company called Green Card Design. I led and managed a graphic arts team working with companies to establish their brand identity. This experience solidified my passion and skills to be an entrepreneur.

Pursing my desire to be entrepreneur, I started a Mary Kay business, became a Sales Director and earned my first career car in a year. My favorite thing about this experience was learning I had a passion for helping people build their businesses and develop leadership skills to make them successful. While in Mary Kay, I attended a workshop taught by a business coach and wondered how I could get his job. I saw his position as an opportunity to blend my natural entrepreneurial abilities with my passion for leadership development. I took the steps to become a Certified John Maxwell Coach because of John's proven leadership philosophies and abilities to teach leadership globally.

During my free time you will find me coaching youth soccer, visiting fun new places and embarking on "tell mom later" adventures.

I look forward to working with you to accomplish your goals and dreams. Let's "Break the Norm" together.
