The Rewards and Challenges of Teaching Computerized Office Technology
by Olivia Moore
After thirty years of experience in the classroom, Olivia Moore maintains a firm belief that with a positive attitude, diligence, and no shortage of discipline, any student can be successful. Her dedication to inspiring students to reach their potential extends to other teachers. In The Rewards and Challenges of Teaching Computerized Office Technology, Moore recounts her methodology as an instructor of adult vocational education and her own professional journey alongside that of her students. Defined by her unwavering belief in the value of the individual, Moore views the student as a professional with assets they may not even realize they have without guidance and encouragement. Both a commentary about vocational education in America and the journey of one teacher, Moores story is a tribute to the dynamic relationship between teacher and students, as well as a testament to the continued necessity of adult education in contemporary society.
