Meet the instructor
Technology is all around us in all industries! CSN will provide you with a strong foundation to take your Information Technology Skills into any industry, and Tory Klementsen is the fearless leader who will guide you!
Tory has been teaching for over 20 years in a variety of school settings. She has also worked in IT for all of those years. Tory is a self-taught computer professional! As a self-proclaimed nerd, she started on computers in junior high school when her mother brought home a TRS-80 and she taught herself how to program in Basic when the programs that came with the computer got boring. She took no computer classes in high school because she was ahead of everything they had to offer. It wasn’t until she had finished college that she took any actual IT classes. She was given an opportunity to teach IT classes but the job required that she have IT class completions on her transcript. She now teaches in what she describes as her “dream job” working with her group of nerds and helping them meet their potential in Information Technology, and running the on-site student technician program for Sno-Isle TECH Skills Center.
