Meet Evan – Launch Instructor

Meet Evan Morrison, one of the many fantastic instructors here at Launch! Born in Holland but raised in Texas, the former longhorn studied History and Education at the University of Texas at Austin. After undergrad, he taught bilingual math and science for 7 years before coming to Launch.

“I’ve always been interested in computer science classes in high school and programming and used technology as much as I could as a 5th Grade teacher.”

 Evan has always had a passion for computer science, and is now able to combine his passions for technology and education here at Launch! In 2018, Evan decided to further his education in coding by completing a Trilogy bootcamp focused on all of the aspects of web development. As his main focus in computer science, he really enjoys working with React.js to create full stack web applications.

“As a kid, I always loved school and learning. Now, I find it fulfilling to share knowledge with students and watch them grow. I also believe that programming is an essential skill for students today, which gives me a lot of purpose in my work.”

In his free time he enjoys rock climbing and being out in nature with friends.

We are very lucky to have Evan apart of the Launch Code After School team and can’t wait for you to meet him!
