About Me
Elementary Classroom Teacher of intermediate students (grades 3-5) in the Pacific Northwest. I began my teaching career on the secondary level from 1991-93 and left for a brief time and worked at the post-secondary level until returning to the elementary classroom in 1999, having taught in self-contained and multi-age/multi-grade environments. I have been a technology hound, since the advent of the Internet to college/university campuses circa '91-92, and creating web pages for various organizations that I have worked for since 1998. Since 2002 I have been mentoring teachers in the areas of curriculum integration and classroom management in my school system. In 2006 I began work on an advanced graduate degree in educational leadership and curriculum development. In 2007 I was appointed Assistant Principal at my building site.

I am a big proponent of experiential and cooperative learning in the classroom. Many of, if not all my learning communities focus on hands on/ project based learning. In each learning situation I attempt to integrate technology as I prepare students for 21st century learning.

Hi Rick!

Happy New Year! I was wondering if you have any middle or high school contacts who would be interested in participating in a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get more students involved from Oregon!

You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

hi there Rick,
Impressive profile there, I'd like to learn more about what you do.
I to am a believer in authentic project based learning!
My focus is on using media to document those projects thus fostering metacognition - promoting kids and teachers as producers of media. Any way welcome to CR 2.0!
