A fond sendoff for UW CSE’s Hélène Martin

HeleneHélène Martin graduated from UW in Computer Science and Linguistics in 2008. She worked for the Grameen Foundation for a year, then created and led the outstanding Computer Science program at Seattle’s Garfield High School for two years.  In 2011 she re-joined UW CSE as a Lecturer and as our K-12 Outreach Coordinator.

In addition to being an amazing teacher (and an all-around great person!) Hélène created our many-faceted DawgBytes (“A Taste of CSE”) K-12 outreach program which has impacted many, many hundreds of students in the past three years.

Today was the final day of this year’s 8 DawgBytes summer day camps for K-12 students, and the final day of Hélène’s formal duties in CSE.  In the fall, she and her husband, CSE Ph.D. alumnus Yaw Anokwa, will be headed for warmer climes.

We’ll miss you both!
