Hi, I'm Patti Bostwick.
I graduated from Ball State University with majors in Business Education, Vocational Marketing Education and a minor in Vocational Office Education. I spent 14 years teaching everything from Keyboarding to Computer Programming. In the summer to 1997, I started my career as Technology Coordinator at Fremont Community Schools, then moved to the Chief Technology Officer position at Zionsville Community Schools. During the 15 years at Zionsville, the community saw unprecedented growth. During my tenure, I managed the technology needs for at least 10 building projects. During this time, we began our 1 to 1 program in our middle schools, which then spread to our high school and elementaries. We also experienced drastic funding cuts which meant I needed to find alternatives to replacing computer equipment and the need to reclaim computer labs as classrooms. We started our Education – Any Time, Anywhere, Any Device program in partnership with VM Ware. Students could bring their personal devices from home and were able to access their educational programs using VM Ware.
During my tenure as a CTO, I was also nominated to HECC (Hoosier Educational Computer Coordinators). I served as a member then as the Vendor Chair for the annual HECC Conference for 8 years. I retired from Zionsville and HECC in 2015.
In the fall of 2016, Todd convinced me to come to work doing support for SFS. I thought I would only be here for a couple of years, but have found I love helping our clients. I also love working for a company that puts the needs of educators first. Our programmers are top notch and when clients ask if we can customize something for them, the answer is never no, it’s always – “Let me see what I can do!”
I am married to my best friend, Bob. We are a His/Mine/Ours family of 2 boys, 2 girls, 2 daughter-in-laws and 2 beautiful grandchildren. Our family includes 3 dogs, and an outdoor cat that adopted us. We live on a lake and love the beautiful view we have every day and all the wildlife. We love working on projects around our home, traveling to warm places with our dogs, as well as spending time with our kids and grandchildren.
