#53: “How a Teacher Quiets Her Impostor Syndrome” with Rachelle Rathbone of Atlassian | Educative Sessions

March 26, 2021

When Rachelle Rathbone was a teacher she felt totally confident in her craft but when she switched careers, that confidence vanished. She constantly questioned her abilities and often felt like the dumbest person in the room.

Over the years she's learned to push back on imposter syndrome but, to this day, it still rears its ugly head the moment it senses even a hint of self doubt.

In 2016, Rachelle Rathbone retired from teaching, enrolled in a 6-month coding bootcamp course and took on her first engineering role early 2017. She's worked at a startup, a retail giant, and has embarked on her next adventure at Atlassian.
