We are excited to continue our series: Meet the Edcite Team, where we feature a member of our team by asking them a set of questions.
This month we are focusing on our fabulous web developer Tani Wong. Read on to meet Tani!
What brought you to Edcite?
After completing a coding bootcamp in San Francisco, there was a job fair and Edcite actually found me!
Tell us about what you do at Edcite.
I’m a web developer / graphic designer hybrid, streamlining Edcite’s user flow. Edcite has a wide array of functionalities, and I’m focused on making it more user friendly by restructuring our current pages and implementing new ideas for future developments.
Tell us about your education background.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in both Design and Communication at University of California Davis. After being a graphic designer for a few years, I had the opportunity to complete a web development program at a coding bootcamp in San Francisco. Always having an interest in coding, I decided to immerse myself in this program so that I could interconnect my design background with programming skills, and I’m grateful that I’m doing that now at Edcite!
Which teacher in school impacted you the most and why?
Although not in a school setting, my piano teacher of 8+ years, Ms. Marie, taught me not to let my mistakes discourage me, but to learn from them and keep going…especially during a recital. Yikes!
What do you love most about the Edcite platform?
I love that it’s always evolving, whether it’s adding new features to accommodate certain teachers or revamping what we currently have.
Do you have any advice for teachers about using Edcite?
Being a smaller company, I enjoy that we’re learning as much as the users. My advice for teachers is to be patient with the program because Edcite provides a bunch of needs for teachers and their various teaching styles. Problems will arise here and there, but we’re always listening and striving to empower teachers and engage students. 🙂
Name three things that you can’t live without.
- Nephews. Seeing them enjoy the simple things and watching them get smarter every time I interact with them is insane! (ha! I guess that’s how teachers feel about their students, huh?)
- Biking. The chance to go fast, enjoy the outdoors, and exercise without feeling like I am is awesome!
- Floss. I love to floss. My dentist would be proud.
Thank you, Tani, for all of your hard work supporting the Edcite team!
