One of my favorite oxymoron’s: There is nothing so constant as change. We, in order to prepare our students for the challenges of the future must be able to shift and pivot with the agility of a cheetah, and thus enable them with the same ability.

Teachers take the initiative


I kept hearing about iPads and how useful they might be in the classroom. So I convinced Roseann  and Karri  to take an iPad class with me at the ESD in 2001. I set up an ad-hoc network from my portable whereby I could send a wi-fi signal from my personal hotspot to the iPads in their portables. Thereafter, many in our building got iPads and we started our own in-building user group, an iPUG.
