Geek-turned-Teacher: Once a Geek, Always a Geek

My wife is f0nd of the saying, “Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it.”  This year, I got exactly what I wanted.  After struggling last school year with grading, lesson planning, and getting used to being a classroom teacher, I finally earned a position I’ve been working towards for almost seven years:  full-time technology teacher.  I remember when I first left the technology industry, expecting to easily find a technology teaching position in the public school system.  That was my first taste of the highly political world of public education.  Now I’m in private education and things work differently.  The red tape of budgets, committees, government funding, etc. is gone.  I’ve been given the responsibility of shaping the technological future of our school.  I better not screw it up.
