He realizes the challenges in our current public educational institutions and meets them head on. His unique blend of educational background, technical expertise, and humor make him a successful driving force for this change. As a speaker, he brings this background as well as a wealth of practical tools and ideas that teachers can use in their classroom tomorrow.
