Curriculum Vitae (in progress)

This is a partial Curriculum Vitae as I go over my past courses and accomplishments to consolidate everything in one place. Most of this reconstruction of my "CV" is done through going into past notebooks and schedule books, file cabinets, and basement boxes, so I welcome corrections on teacher's names, course names, etc.
