I'm a former first and fourth grade teacher who is currently enjoying life as a Technology Specialist for Fergus Falls Public Schools in west-central Minnesota.
I started iQ Academy Minnesota, an online K-12 public school serving students across Minnesota.
I've also deployed Google Apps for Education to our 2000+ students and staff.
I frequently present on education technology topics at national conventions like TIES, and regional gatherings like Google Apps for Education Summits.
I also provide school districts one- or two-day summer Technology Boot Camp when asked.
I'm the founder of the Fergus Falls Mowing Club, a volunteer organization that mows yards in and around Fergus Falls for needy individuals.
I love video editing, web design, all things Google and Apple, and teaching teachers how to use tech tools to reach students.
In my spare time I play guitar and drums at my church, coach Special Olympics, play disc golf, work on my Jeep Wrangler, and fly quadcopters.
