Good afternoon, colleagues. 

We are pleased to welcome Mr. Jeff Turner as our new Director of Technology and Data Services.  Mr. Turner comes to us from Region 14 (Woodbury/Bethlehem) where he was a data administrator for the entire district.  He brings a wealth of experience with hardware and software solutions for schools, uses of capturing and analyzing student performance data, and importantly, working with teachers in classrooms to integrate technology into pedagogy across grade levels.  In Region 14, he served as a middle school technology teacher and assistant principal before his work in the central office.

Originally from Maryland, he holds a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Bowie State University, a Master's degree in Educational Technology from George Washington University, and a Sixth Year certificate in Administration from Sacred Heart University.

The addition of Mr. Turner to our team represents a significant step in our continued progress and momentum as a district.  He will join us on the 
June 30 retreat day, and he will begin with us full time on August 1. (This is another reason I am looking to reschedule our Day 2 admin retreat, as I would like to have the whole team present.) Please join me in welcoming Jeff to the team. 

Thank you,
Dr. C.
