About Me

Hi all!
I’m entering my 13th year as an educator.  I am serving as Instructional Technology Specialist for Berkeley County Schools. My role allows me to support and inspire teachers in all school in my district, though I spend most of my time working with secondary educators. I hope you find something valuable from my website. Connect with me here or on social media.

  1. Thank you so much for blogging. I’ve just finished reading your post on: Help Wanted: Change.
    Brilliant! and wow!! You put the rest of us to shame. (I know that’s not your intention)

    However, the long list of things you have done this year, alone, in order to improve as an educator, has given me a host of ideas. I’m encouraged to tackle my lack of imagination – had no practical, hands on ideas, least of all encouragement to know where to start. So my heartfelt thanks to you.

    Also, to let you know that I have posted your post on Change to my former colleagues at the University of Andrés Bello in Chile, including the administration. We’re somewhat starved for reflective educators.

    • Kate, I’m so humbled that you shared my blog with such an audience! Thanks so much. I hope it continues to benefit you and your colleagues. I’m honored to help when I can.

  2. Derek, I think your blog is fantastic! WOW! You put a lot of work into this blog and the information within is valuable. Thanks for sharing it with me. I will continue to explore it in coming days.

    • Thanks! I agree. Plus, for some reason, you can’t see links, they aren’t highlighted, color changed.. anything.
      I’ll switch it up soon.
