Instructional Technology Coordinator

I am passionate about technology, photography, videography, and new media. I was a high school ELA teacher for 14 years prior to coming to Allegan Public Schools. I am a Ferris State University graduate with degrees in education and journalism. My wife is a Spanish teacher at Otsego Middle School. We have two bright and rambunctious boys.

challengeI look forward to collaborating with you to help introduce technology to our students. I encourage you to think about how we can inspire students to leave their mark on Allegan Public Schools. Let’s work to enhance our assignments and projects so that students have to create something with technology that they can share with an authentic audience. Lets get our students thinking about creating blogs, documentaries, podcasts, and presentations that they can share with their family and community.

I hope this website helps make your job as an educator a little easier and provides resources that will assist you on your journey as a lifelong learner and educator. Please contact me with any suggestions or if you would like to contribute an instructional resource to Tigers Tech.
