Educator, Educational Technologies, Blogger

I am an educator, blogger, techno-geek, and father. I have been a high school and middle school teacher for the past seven years who has taught in the cyber school and bricks and mortar settings. During that time I have created numerous courses for my school and have had extensive experience in engaging with students online.

I have a Masters degree in Educational Technology and my Bachelor's degree is in Technology Education (shop class for the old school crowd). I love creating content and helping my students reach their potential. I have vast experience in instructional design and video creation. My goal is to make every student feel welcomed and that my class benefited them.
