I have retired from GPC.
NOTE: I had started to move my GPC website from this location to http://sites.gpc.edu/acraig/ as part of GPC’s migration of faculty and staff individual websites/blogs to a hosted platform, Edublogs. I do not know whether this site will continue to be available.
I was hired as Coordinator of the Dunwoody Learning & Tutoring Center in May 2004, after spending a year teaching and tutoring math at GPC. I was named the Interim Director of the LTC on all campuses in August 2011.
I worked in corporate IT for twenty-three years including seventeen in management, implementing and supporting information technology in multiple corporations. I started as a FORTRAN programmer and many years and corporations later became Chief Information Officer for a major Atlanta corporation.
In addition to my duties as Interim Director of the GPC LTC and Coordinator of the Dunwoody LTC location, I occasionally taught mathematics, from pre-algebra to calculus. I also taught the Higher Education Seminar (HEDS)--Guide to College Success, for new students and for those in academic difficulty.
I earned an AA in Liberal Arts from Hillsborough Community College and a BA and MA in Mathematics from the University of South Florida. I am currently working on a doctorate in developmental education at Grambling State University. I am using Scrivener to write my dissertation.
Here is a Wordle of my dissertation proposal:
I am a Past President of the National College Learning Center Association, NCLCA's representative to CLADEA, Treasurer of the Georgia Tutoring Association, and Associate Content Editor of LSCHE.

I am also a member of the American Evaluation Association, the History of Education Society, the American Mathematical Association of Two-year Colleges, the Association for the Tutoring Profession, the National Association for Developmental Education, and the College Reading and Learning Association. I am the webmaster for both NCLCA and CLADEA. I am married and a grandfather.
