Steven W. Tuttle here; software engineer by trade but i have been engaged as a part-time technical educator for over twenty years.   Here at Saddleback I am privileged to teach interested students about web development using both Adobe Dreamweaver and WordPress.  Many years ago (circa 1996), I designed the curriculum and taught the very first web classes at both IVC and Saddleback. Over the years, I have taught a range of computer-technology related subjects: from pure programming, to theory, to web development and graphic design. I have taught at many educational levels: primary, secondary, tertiary, and vocational.  My favorite is vocational education.  It is a joy to assist others in their acquisition of tangible and useful skills.
