Cody Walega (he/him/his)

Mathematics Instructor

Cody is the math instructor at RiseUp. He graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in 2013 with a degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. Cody has always enjoyed spending time with people, especially in the context of technical subjects such as math and science. Cody spent a few years in the manufacturing industry but gravitated to a profession where he was able to use his skills working with people. In 2018 Cody graduated with his master’s degree in Education from the University of Colorado Denver. Cody understands that math can be a hated subject for some, and a passion for others, and works to create an environment where all people are able to come and give math a shot! Some of Cody’s passions are pole vaulting, hiking, and making music.
