Teaching History
Intro to Business
Cerro Coso Community College

Mar 2022 - Current

I am teaching an Intro to Business course via correspondence for the college's incarcerated student program. I designed the course to use all open-source materials that can be copied and distributed because the students have no access to computers/internet. Course business plan templates were developed to accommodate students that have to submit all handwritten work.
