What is the usual reason a classroom teacher/media specialist needs to email or call you?

Almost any technology-related question or request has come my way, from individual classroom technical problems to District-wide policy questions. As with others in our department, something tech-related is not working as they’d expect and they’re looking for timely assistance. I also probably get an equal numbers of calls and emails requesting adjustments and enhancements in the systems and services we support and provide.

What do you like doing when you’re not working?

Relaxing with my wife (includes taking walks) and our two teenagers (includes playing Euchre, Cabo and Settlers of Catan). Learning tech stuff. Napping.

What is your favorite type of music?

I truly like lots of different kinds of music; beach, blues, classical, country, folk, hip-hop, instrumental, jazz, opera, pop, rock, world music. Favorite varies as mood and circumstances change. Will go with my son’s cello, and much less frequent sitar, playing as I can appreciate the backstory.

What app or program could you not do without?

A browser to interface with the Internet. Google apps. Use both every day.

If you could be any superhero, who would you be?

Does Elson count? If not, will go with Shazam. His wisdom of Solomon and traits from six others would be nice in the service of social justice.
