Faculty Spotlight on Jeff Foflygen, Information Technology Program Instructor
1What’s your position at South Hills and how long have you worked here?
2What do you like most about your job?
I enjoy keeping up with the latest trends in technology, but more importantly sharing almost 2 decades of experience in the IT industry with my students. Being a South Hills grad myself, I know what the students are going through and what will be expected of them once they graduate.
3Do you have any hidden talents or superpowers?
I am a master carpenter/furniture builder. One of the companies that I own involves building custom furniture and home decor signs.
4What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I enjoy coaching my kids in baseball, going hunting & fishing, woodworking, and I would like to learn how to blacksmith.
5What’s your favorite TV show/favorite movie?
My favorite TV shows are Forged in Fire and Building Off the Grid, and my favorite movie is Magnificent Seven.
6What are you reading or what are your favorite books?
I really enjoy history and autobiographies of historical people and events. I have read John Adams 3 times; he was a fascinating individual.
7What’s your favorite vacation spot & why?
I enjoy anywhere new and exciting, except the beach; I don't like the beach.
8What’s your favorite food?
A good pizza. The best pizza I have had was in Chicago, so Chicago style is my favorite.
9Do you have a favorite quote?
I tell my students this every day at the end of class, "Go forth and change the world!"
10What’s on your “Bucket List?”
I would love to go to Alaska and Ireland. Now, after being an Instructor, this might sound corny, but I would love to see a former student of mine do something that changes the world for the better. That would be pretty cool knowing that I may have influenced them.
