Over the past 18 years, in addition to teaching physics and precalculus in the K-12 classroom, I have served as a technology coordinator and assistant principal. These positions have given me the opportunity to demonstrate, support, and empower students and educators in their effective use of technology while providing much-needed structure, order, and stability.
I desire to see schools identify, articulate, and achieve their mission. To this end, I have helped schools go through the accreditation process, implement standards-based grading, and positively transition through substantive leadership changes.
As a doctoral student, I am currently researching the digital divide in an educational context. This includes examining the social, cultural, and economic factors which led to the development of the digital divide as well as observing its impact. While technology evolves rapidly, the issues preventing the closure of the digital divide have remained the same. I hope that my research will play a role in bridging the digital divide as well as exposing the devastation of the underlying causes.
