Adherence to the Federation common core of standards, however, there are times that I swear the students look at me like I'm using the Klingon Empire Plock-Cha standards instead!

I love anything technology related and will often teach myself any subject I am interested in. I started at the age of 12 with a TRS-80 Model I and have been absorbing all the IT knowledge I can ever since. I've been fortunate throughout my years to have had the opportunity to use my skills in some excellent settings. When the local career and technical school called me 15 years ago and asked if I would be interested in teaching I figured it would be another challenge to conquer and then move on. I thought after spending 6 years in the Marine Corps there couldn't possibly be another job I could ever have that would challenge me more. Boy, was I wrong! Teaching challenges me every single day with new surprises and opportunities. I love it!
