About the Program Coordinator:
Dr. Bobby Yeater

Teaching Philosophy
I believe learning is accomplished with repetition. An instructor should be able to demonstrate their technical competency through performance and demonstration in the classroom. Trust and respect among students is quickly earned when the instructor displays their technical expertise and conveys “real-world” working scenarios to students. I also believe in accessibility to include hours outside the classroom and “working hours.” Continuous improvement and staying current with the latest trends in network architecture are keys to success. I want to convey to my students that learning is a lifelong process.
