Dr. Bruce Janasiewicz
Dr. Janasiewicz was raised in a military family where he moved almost every two years. He lived in Germany, Colorado, South Carolina, Kansas, Texas, California, Georgia, and the Panama Canal Zone before his father retired to become a school teacher in Tallahassee, Florida. Most linguists who have analyzed his accent say he is from Iowa. He attended the University of Florida on scholarship where he planned to become a psychiatrist until he took organic chemistry AND his first 8:00 class in the same quarter.
Despite that, he fell in love with college (and his wife) and vowed to never leave, and he hasn't (either one). He remained at UF to earn both a master's degree and an education specialist in counseling. The couple moved to Bloomington, Indiana where Bruce completed a doctorate in educational administration from Indiana University (please rent the movie Breaking Away, and check out the awards ceremony crowd scene, just to the right of the guy in the yellow jacket).
Having completely lost his mind, he then began a master's degree in computer science which he never finished because he had to take CALCULUS! The family, now with two of the eventual 3 kids to tow, moved back to Tallahassee. Bruce initially worked part-time at HRS where he helped create state-wide Abuse Registry software which was scrapped by a new Secretary just prior to completion, and part-time at FSU where he designed a computerized advising system which was scrapped just prior to the start of coding.
Since then he has clawed his way to the middle by serving as the Director of the Advising Center, the Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Studies, and he is now the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies.
