Classes have started once again at TFL, and it is getting busy around here.
Since the beginning of August, we have had three new students, one student graduate the program, and we just completed our annual Moab River trip.
This semester is going to be challenging but we are up for it!
In addition to our students who are taking classes at TFL, we also have three students who will be taking classes at DSU this semester.
Another student is still very involved in his apprenticeship gun smithing, and two additional students just begun or will be starting their apprenticeships this next week at GlitchBusters and BusyBusy.
As always, we are very proud of all of our students and the support we receive from parents, guardians, our mentors, and Educational Consultants.
TechieForLife wouldn’t be the same without each of you!

Last week we started learning about databases and how to get started using the most popular open source database, MySQL.
Each student is also well into their personal development tracks for optimal learning and engagement.
I’ve also had the chance to continue to meet with each student one on one and go over how they are doing,
setting goals with them and tailoring their learning track to something they find engaging
while still developing marketable tech skills.

We went to see Rx Trax
which is a company that tracks medication shipments.
One of our teachers, Ryan, works here,
so we got to see the platform they use as well as the coding behind it.
The company plays an important role in the medical field
and the tour itself gave us a glimpse of that.
It was cool seeing what Ryan does as a programmer,
the platform and code looks very interesting.
–Reid, TFL Student
Tech Class Update…
Everyone has been rapidly improving,
and I am impressed by how quickly they are learning new things.
The students involved with Art Around the Corner should be very proud of themselves,
as they have received a great deal of praise for their hard work and their attention to detail.
Many of the students have completed the requirements for their web certification,
and the rest of them will be done by next week! — Joe TFL Tech Coach
