Pat Salvador

I'm here to make sure everyone gets that "Oh that's how you do it" moment.

No matter the subject, Collin College Continuing Education instructor Pat Salvador believes a class should be interesting and fun in order to be truly beneficial.

That�s the strategy Salvador takes within his Adobe PhotoShop and Illustrator classes.

�I've always thought that if a class wasn't interesting, enjoyable and different you would always loose a student�s interest and therefore, their drive to learn,� Salvador said. �I want each of my students to come out from a class with an accomplished goal. If they don't feel like they�ve learned what they wanted, then what was the point?�

Salvador has more than a decade�s worth of experience within corporations such as AMX and Samsung Electronics working as a technical writer, graphics developer and video/multimedia editor.

�I love my interaction with each student and I believe that everyone needs to participate. Without group participation, there will always be students that miss something, either because they were too afraid to ask those dreaded �dumb questions,� or because they are not a person that works well within a group. I�m here to make sure everyone gets that �Oh that�s how you do it� moment,� Salvador said.
