A Dash of Darryl

Click the button for a glimpse into the chaotic but organized brain of Darryl




I am a learner. They say the best way to learn is to teach! I have been in education for almost a decade, and I love every minute of it! I was a happy go lucky middle school science teacher for seven years and slowly transitioned into my current role as a high school media specialist. As an educator, I begged, borrowed, and stole the latest and greatest pedagogical strategies from the best around me (with their permission of course)! I am always yearnin' for some learnin! One of my major goals as a media specialist is to encourage teachers to join forces with other content areas and to step outside of their comfort zones!

I am certified. I am a certified kick butt ninja Ed Tech Guru compliments of Lamar University with my M.Ed in Educational Technology Leadership, I have my principal certification, I am a certified Google for Education Trainer, and a Google for Education Innovator (NYC19)! I am also a self-proclaimed certified Professional Development party animal! We're bound to have a great time learning together!

I never say NO to an innovative idea! And I truly believe, "if there's a will, there is a way!" Grit is what I try to instill in our teachers and students. Grit through Project Based Learning, passion projects, and S.T.E.A.M. All ideas are worthy and deserve a chance, especially this one! I am one lucky guy embarking on this journey with Flippin' Good Tech and my buddy Elizabeth!
