John Stevens - @jstevens009
Through my 7 years of teaching middle school math, engineering, and service learning, I've realized that students need the opportunity to experience the technology that the world has to offer. I've been honored to present at the Palm Springs CUE conference in 2012 (and again this 2013). I have been named the lead trailblazer for iPad technology in our school district. Serving over 1,000 teachers in our school district, my team and I have provided constant training and support for progressive educators looking to give their students as much of a tech-driven experience as possible with iOS technology. I love bringing in personal experiences through fishing, hiking, kayaking, sports, and other adventures that make the learning as much fun as possible.
