After twelve-years of teaching in a private elementary school in Washington I was ready to try something different. I registered at a local community college’s two year I.T. program. Almost immediately, I found myself employed with the college I.T. department’s service center! And with that, my new career took off.
I later spent three years at Thunder Valley Resort. I started at their help desk but soon was promoted to Network Administrator. From there, I took a position with Sacramento Coca-Cola allowing me to expand my knowledge in networking, support, phones, servers and cloud computing.
After nearly eight years, I was hired by the City of Sacramento to build and maintain a sustainable technology program targeting the area’s senior citizens, a much needed service. I was excited about returning to teaching once again! I set up a computer lab, built curriculum, and interviewed volunteers to teach, and TechConnections was born. The program continues to teach older adults aged 50+ navigate the world of computer technology.
I now work independently assisting men and women in their homes with technology. I am able to use my technological expertise as well as my teaching background to combine the best of both worlds. My business allows me the opportunity to continue working with older adults – something I enjoyed tremendously while working in Sacramento.
My clients find me to be patient when I teach and as a former teacher, I’m used to working with a variety of skill levels. I adapt my trainings to your abilities.
“I wish to recommend Deborah King to anyone who is needing computer help in installing or operating a computer. My husband and I had never had a computer or worked with one.
Deborah installed one for us & instructed us how to operate it. It was perfect! A whole new world was opened to us and we are very grateful to her!”
“Deborah is so smart, quick and friendly, it was a joy to have her in my house. She’s very patient and answered my questions without making me feel stupid. I’m now on Facebook and can keep up with all the comings and goings of my extended family. I couldn’t have done it without her.”
“Deborah takes the fear out of shopping for and using a computer. She knows what’s available to best meet your need and how to find the best deal. She patiently shows you how to do what you need to do in terms you can easily understand. And then she’s there for back up support!”
“I’ve been resisting a computer in my home for years but with Deborah’s help, I now can use the computer she bought for me to write to my long distance friends. I also write stories on the computer which has been so much easier than typing with the typewriter. And she’s been a doll to work with!”
