About Professor Pelachik

I have been teaching in the CIS/Office Administration Department since 1991 and was selected as Cypress College’s nomination for Orange County’s 2002 Teacher of the Year. My background includes many years of training at a community college and work experience in the computer industry.

My classes focus on a variety of Microsoft software applications, in the open-entry program, and management information systems. Helping students develop their employment skills and upgrade their current computer skills is a top priority for me. As a college instructor, I work with local employers to align class curriculum with current technology and to reflect the needs of local employers.
