My name is Kurt Yano and I am the computer repair teacher in the CTE department here at Brooke High School. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business with a Specialization in Computer Information Systems from West Liberty State College and a Master’s Degree in Information Systems from Drexel University. My teaching background includes teaching part time at Eastern Gateway Community College for a few years where I taught mostly programming and MS Office applications. I also taught at Northern Community College part time for a year or two. At Brooke I teach a mix of computer classes in the CTE department such as Fundamentals of Computer Systems, A+ 901, A+ 902, and Networking Essentials. All of the classes this year are simulated workplace which is explained on the website under the link "Link Library" and "Portfolio/Capstone Requirements Page". The concept of simulated workplace is to simulate a real work site which we do by using time clocks, uniforms, random drug testing, and many other concepts. Our company name is "Dragon Industries".
