Florence Tedesco graduated from Cook College, Rutgers University with a B.S. in Animal Science. "I originally thought I wanted to be a veterinarian, but life's events took me in another direction. I obtained a job working for a software consulting firm that taught me how to program business applications. I eventually wound up working at AT&T as a business manager responsible for billing applications. After leaving the world of telecommunications, I took an alternate route teaching path to obtain my NJ Elementary teaching certification and have completed 15 credits toward my Masters of Teaching. I have been a Technology teacher for the past seven years."
