“I have the privilege of becoming the first certified instructor in Italy and being responsible of the National Cisco Academy Training Center to build the program from the ground up. The program gave me the opportunity to meet and become friends with Instructors from all over the world; has given me the opportunity to help tens of thousands of students to develop relevant skills and find a job. It has finally brought me to silicon valley and become part of the core NetAcad team. I cannot be more grateful for the opportunity that I have had.”

“The skills learned prepared me for teaching technical education courses at the community college level. I was in a cohort of instructors taking version 1.0 of the Networking Academy curriculum back in 1998. We were learning the ins and outs of becoming NetAcad instructors. Oh, how things have changed. I have been blessed to teach some excellent students (and other instructors) as a Networking Academy Instructor over the last 24 years.”

I started my career in the IT industry implementing and supporting networks all over the United States. After attending Networking Academy courses, I knew that I wanted to be a college professor and make a difference in the lives of others. I have been teaching Cisco Networking Academy courses for over 22 years and have worked with thousands of students. I am forever grateful for this opportunity.”
