Philosophy

SchoolCenter Picture

I believe that technology can be used to improve the educational opportunities of all military children attending Lackland Independent School District. As the executive director for operations & technology I am fortunate to have a team of professionals that share this vision. Each day we provide the skilled people to provide the services that help make our school a special place for our students. 

I earned a Masters degree in Instructional Technology from Our Lady of the Lake University at San Antonio, a Bachelor's degree from Southwest Texas State University, and an Associate degree in Digital Electronics. My experience as a program manager for the development of intelligent tutors combined with years of teaching and supervising in leadership and technical training contribute to our Operations & Technology department's insight for customer support. Our tecnology priority is to enhance and expand the teaching and learning environment by implementing engaging technology resources in all classrooms with support for effective teaching; technology integration; student assessment; and maximize web resources such as teacher web pages, social networking, student e-mail, and moodle as technology tools to extend the teachers' influence both in the classroom and beyond.
