…among other places.
- two Associate’s from Jamestown Community College – one in science and math with a concentration in the Life Sciences, and the other in math and computer science (which I earned AFTER my Bachelor’s)
- a few more undergraduate courses toward my elementary education degree from the State University of New York at Fredonia.
- a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Arizona State University.
- graduate courses from Rochester Institute of Technology in networking and database design and implementation
- a graduate course in distance learning from Oklahoma State University.
- My last college course was “Digital Photography” which I took at Jamestown Community College in Fall of 2009. For that class, I created an online learning journal, though it was not a requirement for the class. (See confession of blogaholism above.)
- I worked for 18 years teaching computer science and math at Jamestown Community College. During much of this time, my position was split between the credit side and the non-credit side. The non-credit side also offered me opportunities to write customized database applications for business and government.
- Since October of 1998, I have been program director at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary. My students range in age from 3 to 93+. I oversee a staff of 3 paid naturalists and a whole bunch of volunteers.
