Hello,

My name is Jason Wakefield. I am working on the Educational Technology specialization within an Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. I have a Masters of Art in Teaching degree with a specialization in Special Education from Texas Woman’s University. I am currently a substitute teacher and a professor for a local community college in Texas (in the teacher education department), along with being a Military Adaptive Sports Athlete. Prior to delving into the world of education I was in the military for close to 10 years and deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan. I am a current student veteran and help other student veterans to navigate the college environments that they are in.
