My technology experience dates back to Commodore 64’s and Apple IIGS’s.  When introduced to those devices in my younger years, I was hooked.  Since then, I’ve always had a love for all things technology.

As an educator, I found ways for technology to help streamline workflows and enhance lessons.  I have taught nearly every subject at the middle school level but my background is middle school science and technology.  From balancing equations to the genius hour to teaching JavaScript, technology has always been prevalent in my classroom.  After teaching for over 17 years, I have moved into a full time K-12 Instructional Technology Coach position and love assisting teachers in our district creatively integrate technology in their classrooms.

I’ve utilized Google since 2005 and have led trainings on nearly every application available through GSuite and have also led teachers through Google Certified Educator Training.  I also recently co-created a new technology-infused professional development system for my school district called #TRIADvances.  I enjoy teaching tech in and outside of my district and have had the opportunity to lead trainings  in neighboring district’s institutes, have presented at various EdTech Conferences, the IASB IASA IASBO Joint Conference in Chicago, and will be presenting at METC in St. Louis and ICE in Chicago in February 2018.  I’ve streamlined workflows using Google for personal use, teacher/staff use, school district use, and church use.  If you are interested in having me lead a training, you can reach me at mike [at] edtechCREATIVE.com.
