My life story:
Ever since I was in 6th grade I have had a love for I.T. It all started in my "free time" class, which was basically a computer lab where we played games and checked our emails once a week (If we behaved well in class, ofcourse!). Every week that we went to the computer lab I was exited to get onto the computer (I didn't have a home computer at that time). Unlike the other kids, though, I wasn't playing games or checking my email (didn't have one then actually), instead I was going into the deepest parts of the system and exploring the user interface of what was then our old Windows 2000 computers. Every time I went into that lab I learned a little bit more about the computer. My love for computers was just beginning to grow. Later in 7th grade, my school (Burr) upgraded all their computers to brand new Dell Windows XP's. I was just as exited as the staff. This was also the time that I started taking a Business Education Class (everyday!) which invloved learning basic computer skills for future work use. Once again, every class I learned more and more. I learned so much that I was teaching my BE teacher some of my techinques. This was pretty much the same in 8th grade since I had the same teacher. At one point, an expert SMART Board Specialist came in and I was granted access to all the courses. In time, I became a SMART Board Specialist myself and even ran a few SMART Board training sessions with the staff at Burr (I was 13 years old). My passion for I.T. grew so much that I decided to join a school that mainly concentrated on teaching technology skills. I am currently in Pathways to Technology Magnet High School in Windsor, CT. Pathways is part of Hartford Public Schools but is currently located in Windsor. At Pathways I became IC3 Certified and am continuing to advance my I.T. skills with various courses.
