Victor G. Hicks

Founder and Director of Coding with Culture

Hello, my name is Victor "Coach" Hicks" and I am the founder of the Coding with Culture brand. I have six years experience teaching Computer Science and Technology and over 20 years experience teaching and coaching in my hometown of Chicago, Illinois and current residence, Atlanta, Georgia!

I am passionate about closing the digital divide among students of color, more specifically, Black Students. I enjoy using my talents to provide culturally relevant computer science experiences for students in grades K-12 along with professional development and consultation services for K-12 educators.

I am a proud product of two HBCUs: Fisk University and Clark Atlanta University. My experiences at these illustrious institutions inspired me to make it a priority to include the cultural relevance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in my pedagogy across grade levels and content areas.
