About Me
Proving that “booting up is not hard to do,” I was the first teacher at my school to hack into the principal’s dial-up internet connection in the halcyon days of the burgeoning web, circa 1999. Upon surviving the panic of Y2K, Ilooked around the garage at the stockpiled water and foodstuffs and thought, “who is going to eat all this stuff!”

What followed was and is a trek across all things technological, bringing software applications, web fun, and gee-whiz gadgets to students and teachers (I even let a few principals attend my trainings once in a millennium) through my venture called OOPS: Our Overnight Planning System. The Mission of OOPS: Our Overnight Planning System involves equipping educators with “Just-In-Time” strategies and "3=30" math for the unpredictable challenges or “OOPS“ moments of classroom teaching.

My first tech teachers were my students and I try to honor them by passing on their trial and error innovative attitude of calm to the educators that I am fortunate to meet so far in 45 of the 50 states. I have even spoken in Europe, although the audience was a flock of birds in the Versailles gardens.

Your comments, tips, success stories, and cautions about what is working in your classroom, especially with technology, are encouraged and welcomed.

Please visit the OOPS website, http://4oops.com or the OOPS blog, http://4oops.edublogs.org for more information on how to “Feed a Deserving Educator” i.e. bring me to your school.
