Biographical Sketch
Welcome Students 

I want to welcome each and every one of you to the world of business and technology! My name is Mitchell Ober and I will be your instructor for this semester. I started teaching at TCC back in 2002 and served as a part-time instructor until September 2002 when I was hired as a full-time assistant professor of business and accounting. I love my job here at TCC and I spend a lot of my time using technology in my classroom, and it is my hobby at home! 

I am very excited about teaching business and technology courses. My experience comes from more than 25 years of teaching on the high school level. I have several years experience of teaching adult education classes with vocational-technical schools and other colleges. I received my B.S.E. and M.Ed from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Ark., in 1983 and 1988. I have been here in Tulsa since 1991 teaching at Daniel Webster High School. In 2002, I was named Tulsa Public Schools High School Teacher of the Year and was also named the Oklahoma Business Education Teacher of the Year in 1997. 

I have many years of experience in writing grants, working with student organizations, working with advisory board meetings and teaching other teachers how to use technology in their classrooms. I love teaching accounting and computer/technology classes and I find it rewarding when students tell me that they have decided to major in accounting or another business or technology area. I have an open door policy when it comes to teaching. 

My philosophy of teaching, developed from many years of teaching experience, is based on my threefold belief that the overall mission of a teacher is to: 

  • promote positive learning; 
  • spark learner enthusiasm for learning; and 
  • provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning. 

My biggest personal goal was reached in June of 2007 after losing more 80 pounds in less than six months! I want you to set a goal of getting something out of this course that you can use for the rest of your life! Best of luck!
