Next year at Embry-Riddle I plan start studying Cyber Intelligence and Security. Ever since middle school I knew I had a developing interest in the field of computer science and spent most of my time building the skills to excel in my classes. One of the first projects I got to use the computer on was a video for the Oregon Trail. I decided that it would be best to design an advertisement to showcase the facts in a new and creative way. When my group turned the project in, and it was shown to the class my teacher rewrote the assignment according to what we did and used it as an example of great work when recruiting new people.
Soon after graduation, I started a career teaching online. Over the past 6.5 years, I 've taught a plethora of psychology, human services, and workforce development courses. I love teaching and coaching adult learners, so I wanted to expand my audience outside the classroom. This blog is for recent college graduates and mid-life career changers who are pursuing careers in this field. The field of psychology covers careers in law enforcement, counseling, human resources, education, management and much more.
My next question was “did you plan out what classes you need, to accomplish this goal?” his answer “No”. Five years ago, I decided to go back to school and earn my Master’s Degree. Completing my Master’s Degree in Information Technology Management, allows me to fulfill one of my goals. I’ve always been intrigued with computers and programing, ever since I got a Commodore 128 computer in the 80’s.
That boy was me back in 2010 and that email was from my mother, who has a background in engineering and computers. She wanted me to start exploring the world of computer science by using this online video tutorial. Taking my mother’s advice, I started learning how to code Python from this website. Initially, I was very exited to do this course. Everyday after school, I’d quickly finish my homework so I move on to this “fun” stuff.
1. How have you developed as a learner/thinker? I am currently working as an IT Systems Administrator with the Air National Guard and Department of Defense; I decided to go back to school to get a full understanding of the field of Information Technology to advance in my place of employment and mentor younger airmen under me. Taking IT courses has helped me comprehend how each component of a computer operates, how to manage a network and server, how a router and switch works, and how to write code for programs. Learning these skills has enhanced my critical thinking skills; now when I am faced with a problem I can go through the basic steps of troubleshooting to rectify the issue.
Quite a few obstacles had to be overcome to start a new organization in the school. As part of the proposal, I wrote a concise, detailed document that included tentative guideline of events. In addition, I researched and formulated bylaws with enhanced requirements for admission into the society to fit the standard of high-achieving students at Westlake. I recruited a team of officers to help implement my ideas, and found spirited teachers to be the faculty
I have always wanted to have a better future because I grew up in a low income family. My plan is to attend a four year university full time at University of Washington Bothell and major in computer science field because I am passionate about working with technology, and I want to understand how we can continue to draw knowledge from it. In addition, I plan to attend graduate school while working in the computer science field after I finished with my undergraduate school. I want to be able to give back to the society for all the resources it provided me to reach this point in my education and continue working toward fulfilling my life goals. The Intro to Computer Science class at Roosevelt is helping me understand what it takes to be a computer science major student.
The gift of knowledge can only be rivaled by the other gifts I received that will forward my career. I received a dream spark account which gives access to useful software from Microsoft such as Visual Studio for C++, SQL Server, Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 Pro, among many others. I also got the valuable gift of Cisco IOS files. These files allow me to replicate all the projects I did during the internship and in Professor Walter 's Computer Networking Class. I wished there was more time to learn new things during the internship.
As a young student, I would often see many college students deeply focused on their work. Seeing them motivated me to learn more and concentrate on the two most important things in life, learning and helping others. I was always interested in learning about Cyber Security and protecting personal data against hackers trying to attack the network. I want to continue my studies through graduate level education in computers. I strongly feel like the Early College Program will help me achieve my goals.
Being a teacher will help students become more successful in their education. That 's why I want to become a teacher so I can help students understand the concepts of learning different material. That 's why it takes time and effort to finish a task from where you start. Thanks to JSCC I can take campus courses to help me take the classes I need to help me further my education, transfer to a four year institution, graduate with a bachelor 's degree and start my new life with a new career. I am proud to be a
