Sara Teristi

President & Treasurer

When Sara moved to North Carolina 5 years ago her boys complained they weren’t getting enough technology education in their classroom and begged her to do something about it.  She started the Brassfield Coding Club at their school and that’s how this all began.  That first year over 150 students applied to the club, year two she met Emily, year three a parent asked for help setting up a coding club at their school.  Sara saw the need in the community and decided to make it her goal to reach every student in Wake County and give them the chance to learn to code.  And that’s how Code Ladder was born, out of Sara’s love of working with kids and her desire to give every single student the chance to learn.
