Meet Guest Blogger Dave Kootman!

Dave_photo A few months ago I received a call from a gentleman that wanted to learn more about the Discovery Educator Network.  Upon returning his call, I learned that he had already applied to the DEN and was anxious to be approved and have the opportunity to tap into our resources.

We spent quite a while on the phone over the next few days talking about his passion for integrating FREE technology into his classroom.  Hmmm… I thought… My DEN members LOVE FREE stuff, so I asked him to host his own column in our S. CA Blog.

So meet Dave Kootman.  He’s is currently a 4th grade teacher and technology coordinator at a school on Camp Pendelton in San Diego, CA.  He has been teaching for 4 years and loves learning about and sharing new ways computers are changing lives.

Stay tuned for posts in a new category titled "Tech Tools for Teachers"  If there is a program you would like him to write about please email and put Tech Tools in the subject line!

Welcome to the family Dave!!!!  We can’t wait to hear all the exciting things you will share with us!
