Ed is a certified AutoCAD instructor and teaches AutoCAD, Revit, and Microsoft Office – Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Word and Project. He also facilitates IDT classes for local John Deere dealerships. Before beginning his teaching career, Ed worked for various engineering consulting firms in MN, SD & FL.
When asked, "What do you like about teaching?" he responded, "The ‘aha moment’, when that lightbulb goes off and a student ‘gets it’. It’s my favorite part of teaching computer software. Hearing students excited about going back to work to try out the new tools they’ve discovered in class.”
Ed has taught at NDSCS since 1995 and has been with TrainND SE for 18 years, and when he is not in the classroom, he enjoys working on tracing his family genealogy.
Ed lives in Wahpeton, with his wife, Dawn, and their daughter, Meaghan.
