Thank you for your interest in Dominican University’s Professional and Continuing Education Courses. My name is Ernie Shaffer and I look forward to helping you! My area includes the San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador and Sacramento Regions.

As a former teacher and administrator, I know how much time you put into planning every year whether it is to make your classroom inviting and lessons engaging, or creating presentations for a grade level, team or staff. Dominican University of California also appreciates the commitment you have made to the students, families, and communities you serve. This is why we bring you courses that reflect what educators truly need to get a new school year off to a good start. Every year I hear educators from classroom teachers to coaches to administrators say our courses are the best credits they’ve ever invested in and that it was great to treat themselves to professional development that really let them focus on what was important to them. I look forward to helping you meet the educational goals that important to you!
