My name is Frank Roberts, I work in Information Technology, specifically – Windows Network Administration. I’ve been in IT/Network Administration for 13 years now – DAM! It doesn’t seem that long.
In those 13 years I’ve worked in a variety of IT rolls, helpdesk, phone support, network assistant and finally network admin. In those rolls I’ve done a variety of jobs, Phone system management, Database Administration, Project Manager, and the list goes on.
For formal education, I have a Master’s Degree in Business Administration, a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Systems Management and an Associate’s Degree in Computer Studies.
In spring of 2006, I embarked on a new journey – part-time instructor at Portland Community College (PCC), In Portland Oregon. I’ve enjoyed the experience and learned as much as I’ve taught. So far I’ve developed new understanding of people skills & more in-depth technical knowledge. Teaching has been very challenging and I’m glad I was able to jump in. I teach three classes at PCC, Windows Server Administration, Windows Server Networking and Windows Active Directory.
I originally started this blog so I could catalog my experiences in my quest to get my Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) certification. While my quest for certifications hasn’t changed what cert(s) I end up with has.
Currently I hold the following certifications:
Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP)
Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS)
Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA)
Network+ (By CompTIA)
