After graduating with BS and MA degrees in Sociology from Ball State University in 1971 I began my teaching career in Brownsville, Texas at Texas Southmost College. I taught Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, Statistics, and Urban Sociology, a course I developed. After three years I moved to Indianapolis where I began a career with the State of Indiana as a statistician. After working as a statistician, labor market analyst, labor market analyst supervisor, administrative analyst, and systems analyst I took an early retirement and began a career as a computer consultant. I installed, managed, and enhanced Novell and Microsoft networks for Saint Lucie County (FL), Palm Beach County (FL), Microage, and the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. In 2003 I left my computer career behind and began selling residential real estate for Coldwell Banker in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. In 2009 I went back to college teaching on a part time adjunct basis teaching Sociology and other subjects at Everest University in Melbourne, Florida. I have taught nurses how to use nursing home inspection software and laptop computers. I have also taught poll workers how to use voting machines and run elections. I am a proctor in training for the administration of MENSA admission tests, and I continue to maintain interest in general aviation as a student pilot. As the learning process never ends so the opportunities for teaching continue to be presented.
