Tech Training. It’s what I do.

In October, I was laid off… well, kinda. I was moved to a desk in the basement where I am to hand out laptops and not speak unless spoken to. My classes were killed in favor of a political statement to the muckety-mucks. I was sad. My students were sad and desperate. It’s been a tough few months.

Then… the classes started again. And me, the professional trainer… the well-paid professional trainer…. still behind the desk. They invited unskilled volunteers to teach the classes and so far they’ve been a disaster. I believe we have insult added to injury. Sigh. Will train for free! Nope. Here’s your sign laptop. Thanks

And here are some computer training links for you. Love to all!
