A handful of things "About Me" --
Director of Technology,
Mt. Vernon Township High School
Mt. Vernon, Illinois
Twenty years in EdTech.
I work with my district and others to create educational opportunities and "light bulb" moments.
I have been fortunate to help more than 100 K-12 schools, non-profits and small businesses make successful transitions to the Google Apps universe of tools.
Make my district's technology as dependable and invisible as I can while supporting my teacher's classroom efforts.
Inspire epiphanies; connect passionate professionals with the tools and understanding they need to reach and teach; and to help them put time (and some fun) back in their days.
