I am a part-time adjunct college professor at a local community college in Philadelphia, PA. I teach in the computer technologies department and have been in the computer field for more than 20 years. For more than 10 years, I have been instructing or training elementary, high school, higher education students, and working adults and educators. Most of these jobs were contracting positions although I have trained co-workers in profit and non-profit environments.

I have an A.A.S. degree in Computer Information Systems - Internet options and web development using HTML (GPA- 3.92) and graduating with highest honors in this concentration from Community College of Philadelphia, PA. I also graduated with a 3.96 GPA with a B.S. in Information Systems - Technology Management (Peirce College in Philadelphia, PA) and a Masters in Instructional Technology Management (4.0 GPA) from La Salle University also in Philadelphia, PA. I also am a ACA (Adobe certification in Communication in Rich Media - Adobe Flash CS5). I continue to learn new software and techniques for training purposes.

My Masters has provided me the expertise to work with students in an online or hybrid environment. I have the ability to provide edutainment which will provide my students with engaging activities and learning experiences. My goal is to partner with my students and provide feedback methods that will develop self-directed and life-long learners.

So I hope to hear from those students that want learning to be an adventure while completing the objectives of the coursework. I am a people person who is dedicated and passionate about computer technology and making it available to everyone.
