Hi, I am Geri-Lynn Clark and I’ve joined theCoderSchool Syosset as its General Manager. As a person whose career involved a passion for technology and innovation, I am thrilled to be part of theCoderSchool, where coding is the cornerstone for analysis and problem solving. I’m excited about bringing my real-life experience into a role where I can mentor and challenge the imagination of our future thought leaders.
My career has always been technology and innovation focused and I have over twenty years of experience in financial services. As the former Chief Information Officer (CIO) of one of the world’s largest banks, I was the technology advocate responsible for challenging and redefining the business model. More recently, I’ve had career experiences in consulting for Fortune 100 companies, as well as working at an AI start-up, all of which influence the guidance I can give to our students. I am also a proud alumni of Binghamton University.
I am committed to leveraging my practitioner’s experience to ensure our students can see how the skills they’re learning apply to real-life issues. This is an exciting new experience for me and I am delighted to be part of the educational innovation at theCoderSchool, where I can make a positive contribution to our Long Island community and your children’s futures.
My name is Noreen Kazi and I’m the general manager/owner of theCoderSchool Syosset. I am an active Long Island parent that is excited about bringing this dedicated coding program to our students. I have experience as a community leader and organizer and I have spent over 20 years creating educational curriculums and leading programs focused on ensuring that our youth are ready to be tomorrow’s leaders.
Through my experience designing educational curriculums, I have had the privilege of seeing how technology has positively impacted curriculum development. What I love about coding is that it drives innovation – coding provides students with the ability to take an idea that they have, make that idea come to life, and then share that idea with millions of people. Additionally, coding can provide a cross curricular benefit by improving student’s math skills as they start to visualize and break down problems from other angles. I truly believe that Long Island is at the cutting edge of educational innovation and I am excited about bringing this offering to our kids. You can reach me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meet Our Senior Advisor
My name is Nisha Bhalla and I am the Senior Advisor of theCoderSchool Syosset. I still remember learning how to code in Linux and was fascinated with the collaboration and support of the programming community as we all looked to build a better program, together. Technology has continued to drive significant change and the ability to code is a skillset that every student should have.
I am so excited about bringing this program to Long Island in a setting that is both educational and fun. As a graduate of Harvard Business School, I have seen firsthand the way technology has impacted the future of all industries from farming to healthcare and I can’t wait to bring this knowledge to our students. Additionally, I have over 10 years of experience working in product development roles at various Fortune 500 companies and start-ups and I am thrilled about sharing this career knowledge with our students.
I’m also passionate about mentoring students on their communication and presentation skills, and I love that this program will not only teach kids how to code, but also how to engage their audiences to effectively communicate their ideas and opinions.
