I'm Here To Help Your Digital Vision Succeed

Please let me know how I can assist in your digital integration plans for the 2017-2018 school year. My role is that and to help bridge the Digital Equity gap while ensuring students are learning to be responsible Digital Leaders.


Currently, South Hills has issued 1045 Student Devices with another 322 students in waiting. This is approximately 62% of the enrollment. Hopefully, in the first two weeks, we can increase that number.


My office is deep within Mrs. Hulcher Room, A106. If you go through her class, you will find me in the back, Room A151 (Not even sure how they came up with that number).


For campus technology needs, please see Mrs. Hulcher and/or Mrs. Thomas first. Not that I'm not willing to help; you know I do, but these two wonderful ladies have applied and have been approved as your campus Tech Liaisons. If you can not reach either one of them, then I'm your guy!
