Teaching is my passion and profession

I've been teaching for 17 years. I started out as a pre-school teacher with variety of subjects from English to Science. Then I became a Computer Science professor at a state university. I have a background in varies topics but my passion is in tech. My goal is for everyone to learn as much as possible and ask questions. The more questions you ask the smarter you will become. Never shy away from a question that is unresolved in your mind.
