Meet the 2019-20 First Semester Staff!

I hope everyone has had a restful summer and good beginning to the school year. It’s good to be back and working with my largest group of students yet. I’m pleased to welcome back Arian Askari, Gage Melberg, Robert Smith, and Shawn Scott for second stints with the Help Desk Program. They bring a wealth of experience with device troubleshooting, music, and video production at the Help Desk. It’s been great getting to know my new group of students who also bring a vast range of talents and interests. We are looking forward to doing some great things this semester.

Bobby Aloisi

I am interested in many different forms of technology. I like video games, computers, VR, and drones. I am interested in video games because they have always been a part of my life. I started off with a DS playing Fossil Fighters and have since upgraded to an XBox and a computer. I onced used a VR set when I was in Foxwoods and have grown an interest for it since. I decided to join Help Desk because I want to learn about new technology that I have not learned about. In college, I want to learn about oceanography and become a marine biologist. I have always been fascinated by the ocean and just want to know as much as possible about it. I am currently taking an online oceanography class. A couple of things about me are that I play soccer, baseball, and I swim. Also outside of school I ski and I am scuba certified.  

Arian Askari

My name is Arian Askari. I chose to be in Help Desk, because I wanted to learn about different technologies and how they work. I have practiced martial arts for 11 years. I also dabbled with instruments such as the piano for a few years. Technologically speaking I have participated in a couple activities. I participated in a mixture of C++ and HTML coding for 2 years. I even learned how to use the program Xcratch to make small games over one of my summer vacations. Although I have participated in all these topics, none of them appealed to me. A staple in my interest was Apple products and most recently jailbreaking iPhones and iPads (by the way it’s not illegal).

Sameeha Baig

My name is Sameeha Baig. I’m in my sophomore year at the Burlington High School. I decided to join Help Desk because I want to show women that they can put themselves out there and show the world that they can accomplish something in technology because most women aren’t confident with themselves being in the technology field because they believe it’s for men which isn’t true because women can do technology. My interest in technology is mostly coding because it interested me when I took computer science last year. My career interest after high school is that I want to study to be a doctor. In school I’m also the activities coordinator for the Medical Club. I love anything to do with reading; you can say I’m a bookworm. I look forward to being part of the Help Desk this year and exploring the technology this year.

Doug Bibbo

As far back as I can remember, I’ve had some video game system in my house from a DS to a Wii to an Xbox 360 to an Xbox 1 and my interest in these has only grown. Some games I’m interested in are Far Cry, Overwatch, Fortnite and Minecraft. I’m a senior and among my interests in video games, I like to run track and I also love coding. I have been coding since freshman year and I can’t imagine what I would be doing if I had not found this passion. I decided to join Help Desk because of love for new and fun software and hardware and I have learned that this is definitely the place to be. I enjoy coding so much that I will take it beyond high school into college and take computer science and hopefully have a career in coding. Specially I think data analysis using web scraping is interesting but I also like video games enough to create them for work

Hari Biji

My name is Hari Biji, and I am a senior this year. I decided to join Help Desk because I have only heard great things about this class. I am excited to see what we will be doing this year. I am looking forward to learning how to solve problems that we encounter daily at school. I consider myself a hands- on learner so I hope to learn more about technology this year. Some of my interests are watching and playing sports and playing video games. I mostly play Madden 20 and 2K. Madden 20 has a mode where you create your own “Ultimate Team.” Whereas 2K, I play the MyCareer mode where you play as yourself. On the weekends or any free time I have, I go play basketball at Wildwood with the boys. For work, I work at the Burlington Best Buy at Customer Service. After high school, I want to major in biology in college so I can go for med school afterwards. My end goal is to be an anesthesiologist. 

Isaac Borcates

I’m interested in helping people at the BHS Help Desk. I’m also interested in programming things. I decided to join the Help Desk because I can help people with things that I  like to do. For a career, I want to work at Apple or invent new technology.

Kevin Chen

Hello, my name is Kevin. I am a senior at Burlington High School. I am interested in programming and artificial intelligence. I have been part of the Battlecode competition last year and plan to lead this year as well. I decided to join Help Desk because students have a lot of freedom in what they want to work on. I believe that I have a diverse skill set to contribute to the school. I hope to take on many programming projects that benefit the community. I can also work on setting up web servers and databases. I hope that Help Desk may provide me with more competition programming experience during the time leading up to Battlecode. After school, I do cross country. I am also part of Math League and Crystal Club. I am planning to study computer science and data science in college. I have self taught myself programming. I started teaching myself Java from the end of middle school to the beginning of my freshman year. Web automation and game development sparked my interest in programming. I wanted to do certain tasks more efficiently as well as being able to mod games. Now, I also have experience in C, SQL, and PHPphp. I am always trying to learn more about programming everyday.

Sophie Craig

Hello, my name is Sophie Craig. I am currently enrolled as a sophomore here at Burlington High. My reasoning for choosing Help Desk was that I have always been one for the Internet and social media. My parents say that my phone is just an extended limb of mine! Instead of just my personal use, I have decided to take my knowledge of electronics and help others with it. I am a great addition to the Help Desk for I am always willing to learn new things, and do the best I can to help others. Not only am I great with helping the students of BHS, I am constantly thinking about the future, what I want to be, and how technology advances will impact that. I believe this course will benefit me substantially, and give me a new wing to branch out onto. It will possibly even create an easier career path for me to become an internist, which is a job that doesn’t only involve lots of knowledge, but lots of technology work that I must apply as well.

Sean Culhane

My name is Sean Culhane and I am a senior at Burlington High School. I have been a part of the varsity basketball team and the club DECA. Technology is something I use everyday and it would be hard to live without. Some technological things I enjoy are playing video games, going on the Internet, and using social media.  Other hobbies I have are playing basketball, exercising, and watching Netflix. I play Madden and NBA2k on PS4. Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube are the main social media platforms I use. I decided to join Help Desk because I want to learn more about technology since it is very popular and I want to be able to help people who are having problems with their technology. Also I have heard great things about this class from other students and it made me interested in taking the class. I am not completely sure what I want to do as a career, but I am thinking something business related. No matter what career I choose there will probably be some type of technology involved and that is another reason why I chose Help Desk. I believe Help Desk will teach me many things about technology that I did not know and that I can use moving forward with my life.

Dominic D’Angelo

Hello my name is Dominic Rocco D’Angelo and I am currently a senior at Burlington High School. I decided to join the Help Desk because I take pride in helping people and it gives me a sense of accomplishment when the problem gets solved. Some of my interests are sports and video games. I have wanted to create/design a video game for as long as I can remember. I enjoy playing soccer and basketball with my friends as it is another way to escape rather than just sit in and play video games. I just want to be able to get kids to get out of the real world for an hour or two at a time and making money while doing it won’t hurt. 

Paul D’Eramo

My name is Paul D’Eramo and I’m a junior at Burlington High School. I’m mostly interested in sports and playing video games. My favorite sport is lacrosse because I’ve been playing since I was young and it’s always a good time and video games never get boring unless I play a game that I’m not interested in. I decided to join Help Desk because my friends told me it was a great learning experience and I’m very interested in the drones. Later on in life I would like to be a general contractor but I’m not fully sure yet there’s still a lot of time to figure things out. But I’m very excited to be in Help Desk this year and see what fascinating projects come up later in the year.

Dakota Ellis

Hello, my name is Dakota Ellis I’m currently in my Freshmen year. I really love video games. I decided to join Help Desk because I like helping people with stuff like technology. I really love to play baseball. I’m on the cross country high school team. I enjoy being in that as well as Help Desk. This is my first year at the Help Desk. I really hope this year at Help Desk will help me get better with technology, so I can help people further into the technology. I am good with working with computers. I hope Help Desk will help me with working with the iPads.

William Franz

My name is William Franz. I am a junior at BHS. My experience with technology started in Illinois, when I was 8 years old. The hard drive in my cheap desktop computer had stopped working. My parents were short on money at the time, and after buying a new hard drive, told me they would get me a video game if I replaced it myself instead of having them pay for someone to come and do it for me. After some online tutorials, I opened up the computer and managed to figure it out. Even though my files where lost, I received something even better: my interest in machines, computers, programming, and pretty much anything relating to technology, which has only grown exponentially since. 

I plan to build a career in either mechanical engineering or software development, and now that I live in Massachusetts, a state with much more options for technological education than Illinois, the possibilities are nearly endless. 

From building computers to programming my own games, I have never passed up a chance to learn more about technology and how it works This is why I joined the Help Desk, to learn more about technology in a helpful and interactive way. 

Seamus Gallagher

My name is Seamus Christopher Gallagher. I am in my senior year in the Class of 2020. Ever since I was little I tinkered with things. I would take things apart and then put them together so I’m interested in the physical aspect of technology. I am also interested in virtual reality. I joined Help Desk to learn more about modern technology. Another reason I joined is because I want to help others with their problems and hopefully teach people about their devices.The career path I would like to follow is in the trades, specifically electrical. After high school I am planning on becoming an apprentice electrician. To continue my school and prepare to become a licensed electrician I am going to the Peterson School. I will then hopefully get my journeyman’s license and become a fully licensed electrician. After that I hope to get my masters and have people work under me. With that I will start my own electrical company. Other interesting things about myself is that I like to work on my truck and almost anything with a motor and love to fish.

I also joined Help Desk to understand technology better because almost our whole world has to do with technology. I’m interested in sports and watching them too, and traveling. I would like a job in marine biology or zoology. I’m hoping that being in Help Desk will make it so I can help more people

Sam Gillis

My name is Sam Gillis and I am currently in my senior year here at BHS. This is my first year of Help Desk and look forward to learning from Mr.Wong. I took this course to expand my knowledge of technology, I use the Internet frequently and want to have a more in-depth look at some of the other features it offers.I am also excited about the many basic programs that I have been using for years that we will expand upon. I am interested in studying business in college and different technologies are used in everyday business life. The Help Desk also offers many different gadgets and tech that would not be available to me otherwise. In the winter I am on the gymnastics team and in the spring I am part of the lacrosse team, I also like to hang out with my friends.

I love to help people and the Help Desk is a good opportunity for that. Some of my other interests are in the finance and investment sector. Some of my career interests are in real estate development and independent contracting. I realize the importance of, the basic understanding of technology. Technology plays a large role in our lives everyday. So we should aspire to learn more about it, even if your career is not directly in a technology field. When I’m not in a traditional learning environment, I still enjoy learning on my own terms. In particular cybersecurity interests me a lot because of the important role it plays, and how in most people’s technological lives they much rather accommodate ease of use rather than being safe. This interests me, and makes myself want to learn even more about protecting “personal identifiable information” (PII). I love to try and solve problems. I am looking forward to contributing to the Help Desk, solving problems, and the opportunity for having fun with some technology!

Technology has always interested me and I like to use many kinds of it. Some examples are playing games on my Xbox, flying a drone, or simply just using my phone. My interest started when I did a Summer program for Scratch. Since then I have always been wondering how technology works and if someday I can make a product that falls in that category. I thought of joining Help Desk because the class involves using, fixing, and understanding technology. Since I find working with technology enjoyable, the class will help me gain more knowledge about it. Technology is starting to become more important to our lives, so learning about it could also help me when I am an adult. I hope to learn how to fix any problems that occur on the iPads and make new memories. In the future I hope my career ends up being an engineer. I also enjoy hanging out with friends and family.

I decided to enroll in the Help Desk class because I was recommended it from my fellow friends that have also taken the course in the past. They told me through their experience that they enjoyed their time in the class, as well as the environment that is presented in the classroom. Not only did they enjoy their time but there was great feedback on the amount of technical information that they have taken from the course itself. With all this positive information I keep my hopes high when it comes to learning from Mr. Wong, as his previous students feedback is impacted by how hard he works to teach and keep the classroom fun and exciting for everyone. As of right now, I do not know what kind of field I would like to pursue in the future and I hope that by taking courses like these that one day it will spark my interest in pursuing that department. For my entertainment, I often like to kill time by play video games like Fortnite and Counter Strike Global Offensive.

My name is Kenan Wilson, I am a senior at Burlington High School and my interests include technology, staying active, and hanging out with my friends. I have always had an interest in technology over the years. I’ve done multiple projects in the technology field as well as always helping friends and family with tech-related issues. In Help Desk, I hope to increase my knowledge on technologies and processes to fix related issues. I have stayed active by running and playing sports throughout my life including soccer, basketball, lacrosse, gymnastics and finally track my senior year. I have always used technology for education purposes, when given the choice of pencil and paper or the iPad I have always chosen the iPad and have enjoyed learning with them since 5th grade. I hope to learn a lot in Help Desk.
