Cleveland Dad Transforms Life and Career with Breakthrough Schools & We Can Code IT Partnership CLEVELAND, Ohio – June 26, 2017 – Matthew Fothergill sends his 13-year-old son to Breakthrough School’s E-Prep charter school to give him more opportunities to succeed in life. Now he wants the same kind of success for himself. At age 36 with a high school diploma and a full-time job in building maintenance, Fothergill started taking courses to learn computer coding and software development. It all came about because of a partnership between the Breakthrough School network of high-performing free, public charter schools and Cleveland’s We Can Code IT coding bootcamp.
In just three months, the change in my outlook and happiness is amazing.
In college, I learned a lot of marketing theory but not practical skills. I got hired in sales and customer service for a large national bank and was miserable. My skills were underutilized and I kept applying for jobs where I needed tech skills.
My dad is a software developer and I remember talking to him . . .
