Faculty and Staff

Computer Programming and Networking Department

The entire MCC professional community - its faculty, staff and support areas - is committed to preparing our students to succeed in the classroom, in the workplace and in society.

MCC is proud of its faculty members who bring both academic and "real world" credentials into the classroom. Our faculty's first priority is to teach and it shows in their ongoing interest in and support of their students’ educational, career and life goals.

Working with the faculty, our staff members are a ready resource for questions and are available to help students understand all that's needed to complete their academic requirements.

    Why I Like What I Do
    "I enjoy the challenge of remaining current in the constantly changing fields of computer science and technology. Research and study are an important and fun part of what I do on a daily basis. I enjoy designing and building courses which guide students through the process of learning complex topics in a linear and coherent fashion."
