I’m Dana. I’m learning about web development and documenting my personal journey.
I am a mom and a wife. I am currently an educator, formerly a performer, always a creator.
I’ve been in education for 8 years. The field has provided me with incredible opportunities, skills and experiences. While there are elements of teaching and education that I love and find deeply rewarding, it fits me like a suit that’s too big. I make adjustments here and there – try different shoes, cuff and uncuff, button and unbutton – it never seems to fit quite right.
I’ve come to this conclusion several times over the years, but have never done much about it. So, I’m embarking on a journey to figure it out.
Myers Briggs says I’m an INFJ/INTJ. It says I want to be a counselor, writer, designer or developer.
The DISC assessment says I’m an S/C, which makes for a good engineer, programmer, therapist, educator or developer.
Skillcrush says I want to be a front end developer.
In between working full-time and raising kids, I’m trying to figure out what to do to be the person I want to be and live the life I want to live.
Because I’m a working mother who is looking to transition from an established career in another industry, you’ll see elements of mommyhood sprinkled about here and there.
Are you on a similar path? Hoping to learn more about web development or connect with those already in the industry?
