Life in T110

Class of 2016

  • Clayton French

    Class of 2016 Mobile App Development- The best way to describe being a network assistant would be to start off with what it’s not. Being a network assistant is not traditional, in any way, shape, or form. A traditional class is comparable to a video game tutorial. In the tutorial, you are shown the most basic mechanics of the game Continue Reading...

  • Walker Byrnes

    Class of 2015 Senior Project Manager / Web Development - Most of the people reading this will be prospective network assistants or people interested in what we do here in T-110. Therefore, I feel it is necessary to clear up some common misconceptions about the program before talking about my experiences here. As a word of warning, the role of Continue Reading...

    Class of 2015 Senior Project Manager / Web Development Network assistants, the elite of CAT, specially selected by Mr. Zulli; the day that I got the email telling me that I had been chosen is one of the most important of my high school career. Working in the CNSAP program completely changed my career aspirations, and has been one of Continue Reading...

    Class of 2015 Senior Project Manager Working in room T110 consists of a mix between staring at a computer screen for an hour trying to figure out what exactly is going on, and extended periods of celebration once you figure out the solution to the problem you are trying to tackle. The best part about being in a program like Continue Reading...

  • Dieu-Thuy Mac

    Class of 2015 Sharepoint Web Developer T-110 is not a typical classroom. While most students in other classes learn through textbooks and lectures, we network assistants take a more hands-on approach, learning skills and cultivating knowledge in technology through teamwork, collaboration, and self-led projects. When I first entered Mr. Zulli’s class, my knowledge in web development was limited to what Continue Reading...

  • Willie Macfarlane

    Class of 2015 Senior Project Manager Working as a network assistant is one of those experiences that really leaves an everlasting mark on your life. The environment you work in is, in my opinion, what every work environment should be like; you pick the task you find most interesting or you want to learn more about, you are given instruction Continue Reading...

  • Matt Nipper

    Class of 2015 Mobile App Developer I feel it's only right that I say that nearing the end of my senior year I was dubbed "The Jar Jar Binks of CAT", so my opinions may be slightly skewed from others in the room. Nevertheless I would like to say that my time in T110 was one of the most educational Continue Reading...

  • Jalen Randle

    Class of 2015 Mobile Development Project Manager One day in my sophomore programming class, my teacher asked me if I was interested in becoming a Network Assistant and meeting Mr. Zulli. I heard some of my friends talk about becoming Net Assistants and at the time I tried to do everything with them, so I said yes and she took Continue Reading...

  • Marisa Rivera

    Class of 2015 Sharepoint Governance Although I hadn’t been working in T-110 for long, I really learned a lot while being in here. Coming in here I had no idea what to expect, I knew this class was for students who excel in computing so I wasn’t quite sure where I would belong. On my first day I was immediately Continue Reading...

  • Cecilia Sena

    Class of 2015 Senior Project Manager Life in T110 is a marathon. You’ll train for two years, and if you’re lucky, you’ll make it to the end. Everything you do in this class is done with a purpose; there is no step that does not contribute to a greater meaning. My life in T110 has certainly been a challenge at Continue Reading...

  • Scott Shriver

    Class of 2015 Mobile App Developer I had come to CAT because I wanted to gain a greater understanding of technology, and the math and science behind it. I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life until I took my first programming class in 10th grade. Learning how to code was unlike anything else I had Continue Reading...

  • Nastassja Sielchan

    Class of 2015 Sharepoint Governance I never anticipated working in this classroom. When Mr. Zulli approached me in the beginning of the year with an offer to work for him, I accepted even though I never thought I could be much help. Along with two other girls, I was instructed to help with organization, list making, and inventory needed to Continue Reading...

  • Kalya Subramanian

    Class of 2015 Senior Project Manager I think one of the most daunting aspects of being a network assistant is the classroom itself. The space is shrouded in mystery, with a large percentage of CAT unaware of what lies beyond the threshold. Most approach meekly, with eyes pointed toward the floor. Others overcompensate and rush in far too boldly. Even Continue Reading...

  • Marsela Sulku

    Class of 2015 Senior Project Manager A normal morning in T-110 begins with me pressing play on my phone's music app. After selecting a song that compliments my mood, I log in on the school computer and open Outlook, the current school site, and I'm working on SharePoint Designer. I then work on my project as diligently as I can. Continue Reading...

Class of 2014

  • Zach Shea

    Class of 2014 Mobile Applications Developer A few years ago, near the middle of eighth grade, a good friend of mine came to me with an idea for an iPhone application. I decided it would be pretty cool to try and create my own iPhone app, so I gave it a try. From that moment on, programming has been one Continue Reading...

Class of 2012

  • Robert Clark

    Class of 2012 Senior Webmaster & SharePoint Administrator The Network Operations program can best be summarized with 3 words, “figure it out”. When a network assistant is given a project to work on, none of us ask for help on solving an issue with their project, unless they have really done your research and don’t actually believe what they are Continue Reading...

  • Steven Doyle

    Class of 2012 Project Manager Contemporary education often revolves around tedious lectures and irrelevant bookwork. This method serves only to encourage the mindless regurgitation of stale, well-documented knowledge. Creativity is not cultivated; new knowledge is not created. The Network Assistant Program, however, does not follow this paradigm. Network Assistants are thrown headfirst into a competitive environment without the benefit of years Continue Reading...

  • Lindsay Hofer

    Class of 2012 Senior Project Manager Many things in my life have helped define who I am and shape my future. One of most influential environments and experiences has been being able to be a part of the Center for Advanced Technologies Network Assistant Program at Lakewood Senior High School.

    Class of 2012 Senior Project Manager I am a network assistant at Lakewood High School’s CAT program. Under the instruction of our proctor, we develop applications that function in our daily school lives. The most important project I am faced with at this time is Project Magikarp, the online hall pass system. Project Magikarp, as intended by the name, started Continue Reading...

  • Kyla Kolb

    Class of 2012 Senior Project Manager Diverse environments and a host of different experiences have helped define who I am. However, the environment that has shaped me the most and provided me with the qualities and unique characteristics that would allow me to contribute to the UCF community has been the Center for Advanced Technologies Network Assistant Program at Lakewood Continue Reading...

  • Quran Monroe

    Class of 2012 Senior Server Administrator In my work here in the network assistant program at Center for Advanced Technologies (the CAT Program) I have been developing skills that I feel will benefit my future pursuit of a career. My focus in this program has been on hardware and software based troubleshooting, network management, and computer deployment. The hands-on approach Continue Reading...

  • Marcus Rivera

    Class of 2012 Senior Network Administrator Just what is technology? Technology is defined as the specific methods, materials, and devices used to solve practical problems according to The American Heritage Science Dictionary. Why is this relevant? As a network assistant, it becomes ever so relevant. Most of the problems dealt with in the Network Assistant program are using the aforementioned Continue Reading...

  • Andrew Styrcula

    Class of 2012 Senior SharePoint Manager I'm accustomed to a standard learning environment. A boring, absolute, bookwork, homework, tests style learning environment. I’ve loathed nearly every single thoughtless course I've had to learn in that boring, traditional style. Yet, I've learned more in an open, self-driven course as a "Network Assistant" in the CAT program than I have in the Continue Reading...

  • Aaron Teetor

Class of 2011

  • Kolby Clark

    Class of 2011 Senior SharePoint Administrator I first decided to go to the Center for Advanced Technologies because I was told that it was a Computer and Science magnet school and those were the two subjects that most interested me. I am drawn to them because of the base similarities in both of them, the ability to find a correct Continue Reading...

  • Zlatan Dizdarevic

    Class of 2011 Senior Project Manager Starting my freshman fall semester of college I’ve found myself reflecting on my experiences in high school and rethinking some of my favorite memories and I’ve come to find that a fair majority of these experiences I fondly remember have happened during my tenure as a Network Assistant and happened in the Network room. Continue Reading...

  • Michael Wiley

    Class of 2011 Senior Project Manager When I first entered the Network Assistant program at the Center for Advanced Technologies, I was a less than average student. I had a low GPA, was uninitiated, and many teachers were astonished that I was let in. More importantly, I had a lot of untapped potential that none of my regular classes had Continue Reading...

  • Austin Brogle

    Class of 2011 Senior Network Administrator - Working as a network assistant has really helped me learn what I want to do with my life and what I want to major in.
