Hi, I'm Mike.
I am an educational technology coordinator, instructional design enthusiast, and professional development facilitator with more than a dozen years of experience as a teacher and trainer. During my years in the classroom, I embraced technology and design as a way of engaging and motivating students, while also arming them with the skills required for success in the modern world. I believe that technology can inspire student’s creativity, spark their curiosity, and drive their desire to gain knowledge.
I am an Instructional Coach in the Mamaroneck Public Schools, the Director of Technology for the STEM Leadership Center, an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Google Certified Educator, and a Participate Learning Expert. Check out my resume to see all the nitty gritty.
