I served as a Computer Teacher and Technology Coordinator in the City of Chicago for 10 years. Now I have moved on to other ventures after meeting my wife and new family. We are planning a relocation to my home town of Edwardsville, IL. I will be adding many more documents in the coming days and weeks.
My teaching is mainly visual through the use of PowerPoint presentations and LCD Projectors. As a computer teacher, grant writer and computer technician, I always had plenty of examples to show my students.
In 2004, I received a grant from the Social Security Administration for over $20,000 worth of used computers to rebuild and restock the classrooms of my school with computers. Then in 2009, Limeade for Learning, a Sonic brand, through Donor's Choose, granted my request for a new LCD projector and two web cameras so that I would be able to communicate between our two computer labs and then throughout the world via Skype.
Most recently, in December 2010, Walden University awarded me my Masters of Education Technology degree. Prior to that, Throughout the 2000-2001 school year, I served as part of a cohort student teaching program at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. My original degree was earned in 1994 from Western Illinois University in Macomb. This was a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with a Minor in Computer Science.
My bio is mainly done in video. I will try to add it to my website at http://techedsuccess.com.
