About the Author

I began working with computers as a public school teacher when the first personal computers became available. My first computer was a Commodore VIC 20, followed closely by a Commodore 64. Software consisted of any code that I could create using BASIC language or that I could type from a magazine. One of my earliest uses of these computers was to write a math tutoring program for my daughter, who hates math to this day. I could see the potential that computers had in education and so I continued to learn. I did software evaluations for the region service center where I worked and also taught the first computer literacy course at the school, for both students and for members of the community. I still remember the roomful of adults and school age kids sitting 3 to a computer, the kids eager to learn and the adults afraid to touch the keyboard! After leaving that school and going into private business for a while, I moved into higher education working with students pursuing degrees in medical fields. During that time, I completed a PhD in Education. Much of my academic success can be attributed to having a strong knowledge of computers and how to make them do what I wanted--needed--them to do. I currently work online with students completing their dissertations in education, business, and psychology.
