Programming Career And Education 

Sometimes I feel like I am beginning all over again. I am currently a school teacher and am seriously thinking about changing careers. I regained an interest in programming and computer science about a year ago when I attended a teacher training presented by Code.org. I immediately began having my students working with basic programming script. I then began looking for free on-line courses in computer programming.

I found FreeCodeCamp.com and have begun working through their coursework. I finished the Front End Certification portion, and have a basic understanding of HTML, CSS and JS. I have also received JS certification through SoloLearn. Their course work has been a good review of skills. I am also working on learning Linux and looking into what other things I should be learning as well.

I would like to begin applying for programming jobs, even as part-time, but because of my lack of confidence, I am holding off on a couple of them.  I am always open to suggestions and any input to help me become a better programmer or a more clear path to travel.
