If a man's from Texas, he'll tell ya. If he's not, don't embarrass him.
Apparently I was born in Texas, but mostly
raised in Utah. At 17, I ran off to sea-- I joined
the Coast Guard.
Home port Hawaii, with a couple trips to Alaska, and a good portion of the Pacific Ocean. When discharged, I stayed
and went to CCH (Coconut College of Hawaii) which became BYU-Hawaii. After I took everything 3 times
(i.e. Polynesian Dance, Music, Asian Religions, Underwater Basket-weaving, plus some math and computers)
I decided I better get back to BYU Provo and get educated. Degreed in Education, with major in Math Ed, and
minor in Computer Science Ed. First job taught in a K-12 school in the mountains where the priorities were ....
basketball. That's all. Lived in a log cabin. Soon got a job nearer civilization and taught Jr. High and had to deal
with Jr. High parents. Enough. Went into computer field. Worked for companies like Prodigy, Packard Bell, Iomega,
and a little company called Century Software. Tiny Term (Terminal Emulation software). Meanwhile was working on
my Master's at University of Phoenix (for working adults) in CIS. Soon as I finished, found a job at CFCC, and taa daa!
15 years later- I am still here. Back into teaching. And loving it. College students much better then Jr. High students.
