Why Me?

Unlike other speakers, I'm still in the classroom. I teach 5 classes a day and work with students before and after school. I also work with teachers across my district to help them integrate technology into their classroom. My stories of student achievement are timely and relavent to teachers today. Few people can say that. I know what works and what doesn't because I have tried it in my classroom. If you are looking for someone to reach out to teachers who is in the trenches with them, I am your guy.
