My name is Uwe Meyer, and I teach Computer Maintenance and Principles of IT here at the Reese Center. Born and raised in Germany I received my first professional education through a 3.5 year apprenticeship as a TV and Radio electronics technician. Subsequently I worked in multiple music stores in the service department before transitioning into a computer sales position. Over time I started performing a variety of administrational tasks in that small company, covering software, hardware, network, web shop, ERP databases etc. After I relocated to the US I obtained an associate’s degree in Computer Programming from Wharton County Jr. College and a bachelor’s in Computer Information Systems from UHV whilst still maintaining the systems for the German employer. As of 8/2019 I am now a teacher for Computer Maintenance and Principles of IT at the James Reese Career & Technical Center in Sugar Land. I am married and father to a 6 year old boy who is in 1st grade.
