Judy Paternite focuses on teaching web design, database design and management, vb, php, and other topics in computer technology. She loves the challenge of learning new material to help students remain competitive in the workplace. 

Prof. Paternite earned a BA degree in psychology, with a minor in mathematics. Then, she received an MA in Special Education and a Masters of Technology. Currently, she is working hard to finish her dissertation to complete her Ph.D. in Instructional Technology. Based on her interests and the fact that she teaches most of her classes online, the focus of the dissertation is on the best way to teach abstract topics (i.e.: Relational Databases) in web-based classes. Also of interest is how students and instructors communicate online.

At home, Prof. Paternite has the Brady Bunch family. She has 3 daughters, while her husband has 3 sons. Presently, all of the children are grown and living elsewhere. When she has the time, she loves to travel, walk, and read.
