What subject(s) do you teach?:
English Language Arts
PLC Leader, Tech Guy
How many years have you been teaching?:
I'm a secondary-level educator who has spent most of his career focusing on English / language arts; however, my passions have led me to get a degree in Instructional Design & Technology so that I can pursue a position as a Technology Integration Specialist. My years in the classroom have allowed me to experiment with tons of ed-tech while working with students of all ability levels, and that experience has impacted me greatly. No matter what role I have, relationships will always be the strongest foundation for success.
I'm also a proud father to a wonderful little girl & a lucky husband.
Rod - Unfortunately, we have not gotten to that point yet. I am currently working on the journey map and trying to generate a solid set of guideposts before developing the actual product. I'm hoping that being on summer break will help me pick up the pace a little bit. I'd like to use Publisher, but that's a pretty specific program for making the product. Or, perhaps he selection process will help connect me to designers that can make the product much better than I ever could.
Gina - The idea I currently have in the selection process would be a great way to help build relationships with both the parent and the student. If you're willing, I'd appreciate if you'd be willing to positively evaluate Guideposts to Success and even leave some ideas to help us along in the comment section. Thank you!
