This is my fourth year as Hylton's ITRT. I began my career as a Social Studies Teacher, took five years off from teaching to work as an IT consultant, and then returned to my first love, education, in 2004. I was very excited to be offered the ITRT position because it combines two of my favorite things -- teaching and technology.
I am currently the administrator for our school's Learning Management System, accessible at http://cdhylton.com/. We looked at several alternatives, but decided on SchoolFusion as the best match for our needs. More information on SchoolFusion is available at http://www.schoolfusion.com/. All of Prince William County's high schools are now using it, too, as well as several of our middle schools.
This year I also started my own blog at http://tekkieteacher.edublogs.org/. If you are looking for a good blogging tool, I recommend http://edublogs.org/. It's very easy to use and since it is used for educational purposes, it isn't blocked by our school's firewall.
I also maintain an Instructional Technology website via SchoolFusion for Hylton's teachers at http://tech.hylton.groupfusion.net/modules/groups/integrated_home.phtml?gid=49731&sessionid=eec44d5e50696927f5add94fe13142ed. Here I post all our Learner's Guides as well as my IT training schedule.
I'm really looking forward to the NETS*T Certification process!
