When students experience difficulty understanding material well enough to apply their newly learned skills, it often causes failure, which can also cause their lives to unravel. My great passion is bringing the "aha" moment and sharing life skills so students can become successful in the IT field. Even more, my students learn to embrace changes that are bound to happen and learn to be quite prompt in doing so. I understand that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been trained in a range of pedagogies, strategies, and techniques including student centered learning and active learning and completed research on how many different cultures and genders learn. My educational background began in business at Oklahoma State University but when I bought my first computer my whole world changed, and so did my schooling. I now have a Bachelor of Applied Science in Microcomputing and Networking from Davenport University and a Master of Information Systems from Phoenix University. I also have certifications: A+, Net+, Cloud+, Security + and MCTS. I teach in many realms of technology from hardware and networking, to security, cloud, database, scripting, and programming.
