Ohio Student and Graduate ProfileWhen Terezia Matejovic enrolled in the Cisco Networking Academy during her last two years at Briggs High School inColumbus, Ohio, she had little knowledge of information technologies. “I just jumped in,” says Terezia, who completed allfour Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA ) courses within the program and received her CCNA certification prior tograduation. At the end of the school year, she was chosen to represent her school and the Networking Academy at a regionalCisco conference.“While enrolled in the CCNA course, I was able to work hands-on with actual routers, setting up a simulated wide-areanetwork (WAN) environment,” Terezia recalls. “Some of the Cisco labs were difficult to complete, but they gave me theopportunity to apply what I had learned, develop new methods of problem solving, and enhance my critical-thinking skills.The group discussions we had in class helped me gain confidence in my ideas, and I was able to develop my thoughts wellenough to explain them to the other students. My goal was to become Cisco certified before I graduated, and I was very proudto accomplish that goal.”The program also helped Terezia develop her teaching skills. “Teamwork and communication are important when working onlarge-scale projects like WANs,” says Terezia. “I was able to share my skills with other students so that we could achieve ourcommon goals by working together. These skills will be of great value in my career.” Academy instructor James Martiny notesthat Terezia worked daily to assist a student who had difficulties focusing on classactivities. “With Terezia’s help, the student became increasingly engaged in the labprojects, and was able to absorb the knowledge that the labs had to offer,” Jamesrecalls.Terezia is especially proud to be the first in her family to obtain a college degree.She graduated from Xavier University in May 2006 with a bachelor of sciencedegree in business administration. Shortly after graduation, Terezia was hired as acustomer care agent with Contingent Network Services. Within three months, shewas promoted to project coordinator and is now the team lead for her department.“The skills that I obtained through the Networking Academy have been beneficial in starting my career. Mytechnical comprehension of networks, routers, and configurations has been critical in my ability toexecute projects and gain credibility with my field technicians.”Terezia MatejovicWhen asked how her education factors into her work, Terezia says, “The skills that I obtained through the NetworkingAcademy have been beneficial in starting my career. My technical comprehension of networks, routers, and configurations hasbeen critical in my ability to execute projects and gain credibility with my field technicians. The Networking Academy helpedme develop and enhance personal skills that I use to communicate with coworkers. These skills have established a firmfoundation from which to build my career.”To learn more about the Cisco Networking Academy at Briggs High School, visit www.columbus.k12.oh.us/brigghsAll contents are Copyright 1992–2007 Cisco Systems, Inc.
