Local Computer Science Teacher Recognized
Award-winning computer science and engineering teacher Tika Kude has been educating students at Wayzata High School for the past six years. Kude recently received an award from the National Center for Women and Information Technology. A passion of hers since she was in high school, Kude has definitely earned the honor!
Kude was chosen along with several hundred educators across the U.S. She helped endorse high school applicants for similar awards because she believes that female students should develop similar interests. Computer technology used to be such a male dominated field, but now Kude has proved otherwise!
She will receive a laptop and up to $1,000 for computing-related professional development! This Wayzata teacher is proud of representing her school in a challenging subject for many. Kude will be recognized at an event on April 29th for all Minnesota winners. Along with teaching, Kude is an advisor for both Business Professionals of America and First Robotics clubs at Wayzata High School.
