Tom Ward, Instructional Technology IntegratorHome Base: HES and FES"Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important." - Bill Gates
I am a graduate of Slippery Rock University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary and Special Education. I completed my Masters degree from Fransician University in Online Education. I spent the last 10 years working from PA Cyber, as a virtual classroom teacher. I have developed curriculum for a variety of levels in an online format. I am also certified in Middle Level Math (7-9), Middle Level Science (7-9), and Middle Level Citizenship (7-9).
Over my teacher career I have integrated technology throughout all aspects of my classroom. I have developed vodcasts, podcasts, development, webdesign, etc. Looking forward to showing you all of the tips and tricks to making you a stronger teacher than you already are.
As a graduate of North Allegheny it is a privilege to come back and work in the district. I am truly looking forward to collaborating to make this district a leader in technology usage by it's teachers and students.
I work with the North Allegheny Inline Hockey Teams, as the Varsity Head Coach.
I also have three kids (Tommy 10, Peyton 8 and Sydney 7).
