Professional Learning Specialist
Professionally I am a National Board Physics Teacher with over 20 years of classroom experience and an early adopter of all things technology. I used to train technology as part of our district’s Professional Development department, I am now Senior Analyst in my districts Information Technology department. In my spare time I am a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert a certified Trainer and a Minecraft Mentor. In March of 2014 I traveled to Barcelona Spain to represent the United States at the Microsoft Global Forum (E2) where my team project placed third in the overall competition. In my district I work to support innovation in our classrooms by promoting the effective use of safe instructional technology.
Once a Physics teacher always a Physics teacher so every lesson I see has math and science potential within it. Some might say I am a Star Trek fanatic. In my personal time I enjoy restoring classic GM cars including the 55, 56 & 57 Chevy’s, all Corvettes and my previous favorite, Fiero’s. I have my private Pilot’s license and someday I hope to build and fly my own light aircraft.
