BCT 105  /  Computer Applications

Computers and their applications can be intimidating to novices and experienced users at times.  My goal for this class is to give you the confidence to make using a computer part of your daily life.  Come learn about hardware, software, networking, the internet, and Microsoft's Office Suite all in an environment that encourages questions and exploration.  (For official WVC course description please see wvc.edu)

BCT 130  /  Spreadsheets

I love teaching this class.  Spreadsheets are an amazing tool and everyone should learn how to use them.  Students consistently finish this course with a new found appreciation for spreadsheets and their many uses.  Consider the advanced class (BCT 220 - Spreadsheets II) if you find you love spreadsheets as much as I do.(For official WVC course description please see wvc.edu)
