Before coming to CCSF in the Fall of 2017, I taught ESL for about 25 years. As a teacher, I enjoyed working with students and supporting their learning through the innovative use of technology. What started as an interest in using technology with my students developed into managing an LMS to support student language learning for all ESL students at my university and training other faculty/staff to use educational technology to enhance their teaching. By the end of my teaching career, I was wearing a second hat, Managing Director of Technical Services. At CCSF, in my role as Senior Trainer in the Educational Technology Department, I continue to help instructors use an LMS more effectively with students.
In my free time, I like to dance Salsa with my wife and two daughters who are old enough to dance with me too! I also enjoy volunteering with the National Park Service in Yosemite as you can tell by my profile image.
