I am looking forward to a great year at Casteel. It is going to be an extraordinary time as we blaze new paths in computer technology and cyber.

My Education and Professional Background

You could say that I majored in majoring! From dental hygiene, business and finishing with a degree in political science from Illinois State University. Years later in life I found myself back in school getting my teaching degree and in April finished my Masters. I am highly qualified in elementary education, special education (cross categorical), health and am Microsoft certified. Before becoming a teacher I worked in corporate USA. In nearly all my circumstances I ended up being the go-to person or teaching something. The last career before teaching brought me to CompUSA, where I taught computer software for six years and became a certified Microsoft Office Expert. I have taught Peachtree, QuickBooks, Access, Word, Excel & PPT (L1 – L3), Publisher, HTML, FrontPage, Windows, GroupWise, Lotus Notes, Outlook and others. I have traveled the US teaching MS software at various companies including the SSA.

My Educational Philosophy

Technology is the future. Every student needs to be literate in this field to survive in the employment fields of their future.
