I am currently serving as the Network Coordinator in Sterling, KS for USD #376 as well as providing technology integration assistance. Along with working aside the teachers and students of USD #376 I serve as an Adjunct Professor for Sterling College. The course I facilitate is EDU356 Technology in the Classroom.
As an educator who strives to be a lifelong learner, I have achieved a variety of mentorship goals. Those include being an Intel Master Teacher, serving on the Kansas Discovery Education Network Leadership Council as blog coordinator, conduct professional development workshops in Kansas and Oklahoma as a National Mentor for Levels of Teaching Innovation (LoTi), as well as assisting the Kansas State Department of Education as a Thinkfinity Cohort trainer. If you would like to learn additional information about me, use the "LiveBinders" link at the bottom as it will access my e-portfolio.
As part of my off-clock work, I am married with two wonderful children and enjoy being around them. Both of them challenge my wife and I when it comes to technology access and being on the Wii. In addition to being a family man, I co-host a monthly web show on Learn Central with Tina Schneider and Barbara Tallent of LiveBinders. You can find us there under the group name "The Knowledge Sharing Place".
