I went to college to teach English at high school level. I went to 1st grad school for degree in English to be able to teach at college level. I went back to get Masters in Lib Science to work in public library, I went back to get Masters in Computer Science.

I love working with computers and I love teaching and I've got the best of both. My day job involves working with computers and I get to teach CC students Java at night (so much easier to teach than English).

what kind of teaching do you do at night..java? i didn't know your degrees were in english, library and computer science, i thought your background was more finance related, economics or something.

I'm confused. I thought you worked in typesetting. Who does that?

I've worked in a bank IT dept. I've worked for a software company that developed fraud detection software for the financial industry.

Java is a programming language.
