Sharon has been teaching computer classes in Community Education classes for over two decades. After earning her Master's degree, Sharon did cytogenetic research at the University of Minnesota. Her interest in computers began when the first personal computers came on the market in the early 80s. She learned to use her first computer for writing projects she was working on -- and she was hooked. She completed the MIS program at the University of Minnesota.
She found she enjoyed helping others learn how to use computer programs so teaching seemed a natural career path. She likes teaching adults in Community Education because the students have chosen to be there and are excited about learning new skills. Because Sharon also works on computer projects for area businesses, she can show the students practical applications for software programs in the workplace.
