BIO: 
Mr. Sigmon has been teaching in BCPS for 18 years.  He has worked as both a middle school and high school Social Studies teacher, a Staff Development teacher here at Sollers and is now teaching the IT Networking program.  He has had a constant interest in Information Technology and received his A+, Network+ and Security+ certifications in 2012 while teaching.  His time at Sollers inspired him to pursue teaching Networking and Cybersecurity to students to help prepare this generation in a much-needed field with many great job opportunities and great pay.  He loves watching the students learn when they set up networks in the lab on the racks and then put command line in and watch the configurations happen!
