I have been an educator in the Texas public school system since 1989. I currently teach at AC Jones High School in the Career and Technology Department as well as Coach Football and Golf for the Trojans.
I believe in the useful application of Technology. Properly used, technology will help students acquire the skills they need to survive in a complex, highly technological knowledge-based economy. Learning through projects while equipped with technology tools allows students to be intellectually challenged while providing them with a realistic snapshot of what the modern work place looks like. Through projects, students acquire and refine their analysis and problem-solving skills as they work individually and in teams to find, process, and synthesize information they've found online. Through the synthesis of technology, information, teamwork and competition my students can gain experience that will transfer very easlity into the competative job market of tomorrow.
