Teaching technology to enhance both your professional and personal life is my passion. I recently retired in 2016 after 38 years in the classroom. During my career, I’ve taught everything from Architectural CAD to Algebra, from Woodshop to Web Design with the last 20 years being in technical subjects. Now I find myself teaching teachers and I pride myself on trying to be as supportive as possible. Regardless of your background, I believe you will find I offer courses that are fun, relaxed, and offer practical challenges for users of all skill levels while working on your terms in an online environment. When a student completes one of my courses, it is my goal that they end up with skills and materials they can use in their classroom the very next day. Best of all, all of my courses use free, powerful software which allows you and your students to use it at school and home.
