Highlights

Experience

Christy Matte has a passion for informal education environments, children, and lifelong learning. Since her early days of programming on an Apple IIe, she has taught computer classes to both adults and children on three continents. A self-described computer generalist, Christy has done programming, networking, and tech support on both Macs and PCs.

Even so, you're more likely to find her tinkering with creative software or playing a video game than mucking about with hardware and code. She has been online since before the inception of the World Wide Web and operates her own domain which hosts several websites and blogs. She spends far too much time online.

Education

Christy holds a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology with a minor in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She also has a Master's Degree in Technology in Education from Lesley University. She is an active lifelong learner.
