LinkedIn Profile
I have been in the IT field for over 15 years, starting as a help desk technician when I was in college for my Bachelor’s degree. One of the main reasons I joined the field was the chance to always learn. Technology is always changing, and there is always something new to learn.

My teaching philosophy is that everyone can learn, although everyone learns in different ways. As long as a student has the drive and determination to success, they will.
