Broad field specialist in Social Studies 7-12 My real education started when Stephen Hustedde agreed to let my students demo his software created in Toolbook. Since 1995, Stephen has helped me move from Toolbook authoring Software to Flash. It has really changed my teaching style, and I feel programming has helped my students learn more and really get involved with the lesson.
My wife and I have six children. Three boys and three girls. "The Burton Bunch." Ages range from 25 to 36. I enjoy making Adobe Flash applications that engage students.
