We are Instructional Technology Specialists for Bellevue Public Schools and Apple Teachers too. We are passionate about integrating technology into the classroom.
Before becoming an Instructional Technology Specialist for Bellevue, I was a Social Studies Teacher and member of the district’s iPad Academy. Getting better everyday is one of my core beliefs. Also, I am a husband, father of two boys and fan of all things Huskers and Royals.
As an Instructional Technology Specialist I keep busy coaching teachers, training staff and supporting innovation in the classroom. Before this role I taught business education for 16 years. I have a BA in Business Education, and a MA in Instructional Technology. Besides my job, I enjoy reading, golfing, learning, grabbing coffee and running two kids to all their activities. My husband and I are also a couple of sports fanatics.
Along with being an Instructional Technology Specialist, I am an Apple Learning Specialist, Google Certified Educator, adjunct professor, and presenter at state, regional and national conferences. I’m passionate about transforming and innovating teaching and learning with mobile technology. My motto is “Better Together”. In my spare time, I love go for long walks, play tennis, write, read, dabble in photography, bake and travel with my husband and four children.
