I have worked in education all of my adult life. I was a K-12 librarian and high school math teacher in South Dakota and Iowa for seven years. I started working at Cuyamaca College on March 26, 1990 running the circulation desk and the open computer lab in the library. I have been teaching Business Office Technology classes since 2001, and now co-chair the Business & Professional Studies department. I really enjoy working with adult learners helping them achieve their educational and career goals.
