Welcome to my web page!  Being a computer technology educator lends itself to many responsibilities besides those that accompany every professional that stands in a classroom.  It is my duty to equip students with the necessary skills and aptitudes that can cross traditional educational lines.  I sincerely believe that tech savvy students can enhance their education tenfold by being able to use technology to supplement traditional educational practices.

While teaching students to be able to use technology is my main goal, ensuring that students belief in the capabilities of technology is a staple to my teaching philosophy.  My philosophy also includes the idea that students can start preparing for their future now with the lessons designed throughout the course which will assist them with future skills that they will need to develop for most future classes and employment careers.  It is my hope that students exit my classroom with a passion for technology.  Technology is forever changing and advancing and it would be impossible for students to learn all there is to know.  With a deeply rooted belief in technology education, students will leave my classroom eager to learn more about the wonderful world of computers and technology.

'We imagine a school in which students and teachers excitedly and joyfully stretch themselves to their limits in pursuit of projects built on their vision...not one that succeeds in making apathetic students satisfy minimal standards.'
