In a story that begins in a classroom with elementary students sharing big ambitions and continues through time in the library and moments with friends, we learn that for her birthday, young Jackie Whitehead was thrilled to receive a Commodore 64 computer, the key to her dreams! Jackie’s Code explains how she learned to code, pursued a career until she found a place she felt valued as a member of a team, and continues to help kids in Alabama learn today through Alabama Kids Code!
