I am a husband, father of two and a technology coach at a middle school in Northern Virginia,  I am not a writer.  Previously I was a mathematics teacher but I am going to give this blogging thing a try.  I am hoping to do two things:

1) Highlight some of the great teaching that goes on in my school and district

2) Provide a place to share some of my favorite tools and ideas.

We will see where this all goes.
