Hello Red Hat Academy constituents,

I've been fortunate to be affiliated with the Red Hat Academy for _____
number of years.  Honestly I don't know how many years.  I've just
been too busy enjoying myself, and you all know how time flies when
you're having fun.  Believe me, I've been having FUN!!!

Fun fact?  Nothing for me.  I'm a dull kinda guy.  I'm one dimensional,
and that one dimension is not what most folks would consider fun at
all.  It's all good though.  It doesn't offend, and I'm happy :-)

I've delivered the Admin I, II, III courses.  I've not yet delivered the new
Admin III (Ansible) course yet.  However, I'm definitely looking forward to 
doing so.  Looks like I won't get the opportunity to deliver it until maybe
the Fall 2022 semester because it's not on my Spring 2022 course
schedule.  Is anyone feeling sad for me?  

Okay, that's all I've got.  I'm usually quiet, shy, and reserved with my
oral or written communications. If my writing appears incoherent, it's
because I was attempting to compose this writeup while watching
an episode of Andy Griffith.  I know I'm challenged with trying to do 
multiple things at once, yet I still try.  Will I ever (or it is never) learn!

Many thanks to RHA organizers for this Challenge.

Carpe Diem

Hi everyone, I'm Susan from North Carolina, USA.  I've been an educator since 2007, teaching other flavors of Linux until we joined the RHA a few years ago. 

As a student, I was part of a group back in 2003 or so when I took my first two RHA courses at a community college.  I remember it being one of the most challenging courses I took at the community college level, second only perhaps to Cisco Java.  One of my peers in that cohort jumped right into Red Hat and is responsible for the growth of the RHA at East Carolina University.  Lucky for me I had the opportunity to start to learn RHEL with that cohort.  It was definitely a forward thinking group.

I really appreciate the coursework available for instructors --- a lot packed into each course, but such great coverage!

I teach mainly in System Admin, so RH 124 and RH 134 are my main courses, but I also teach a Windows Server course, and the software portion of the A+. 

I love teaching and can't imagine a better place to have landed!


I'm Dilson Moreira and I'm a Professor at UNISOCIESC / ANIMA in Brazil.

I have a degree in electrical engineering and a master's degree in computer science. I work with computer networks and operating systems and mainly with user support in a public organization in Brazil. I am eager and motivated to start studying Red Hat solutions, a company I have always admired.

My goal is to get Red Hat certification so I can contribute to the education of UNISOCIESC students.

I really like music and different styles, from classical to rock.
