I am both a teacher and a lifelong student. My background is in programming. I've attended Northwest Missouri State, and graduated with a BS in computer Science from Lindenwood University. I enjoy programming, reading, and Role-playing games. My main reading interests are Science Fiction and Fantasy.
I've been a teacher for 14 years, and I prefer to guide my students to the answer, rather than give them answers to regurgitate on a test. To me, the process of finding the answer is just as important as finding the answer.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I think of myself as a facilitator. I provide the knowledge, then help you understand it yourself. My goal is to provide enough help to ensure my students achieve their own success.
