Bio

Cisco Networking Academy Instructor at Dover High School. My job is to prepare students for a future in IT. Along with routing and switching, I also introduce students to programming, PC hardware, software and maintenance skills as well as customer service skills. The curriculum integrates experiences using labs and creates a learning environment where students have to think, troubleshoot, problem-solve, and collaborate on projects. Some of the projects include building PCs, building LAN/WAN networks, Windows, Linux and Gaming Servers. I coach the DHS Cyber Wave competitive Cyber Patriot team and offer students Technology experiences during our new "flex block." In January, I will be offering a "Girls Who Code" club. Goals: Create a classroom environment where students can learn, thrive and conquer. Always do the best job that my abilities allow me, treat people the way that I expect to be treated, start each day as a new day, be a leader not a follower, always be ethical with all my decisions. Give back! Be happy!
