The Technical Mentor works closely with a small classroom of students across the length of the program, and is charged with both with the students' educational outcomes as well as the strength of the classroom community. They watch over a class of students in the midst of a career transition and ensure on a day-to-day basis that everyone is learning rapidly and is on track for success. When a student gets a job after the program, such core teaching staff are those they thank with the deepest emotion.
