This TechMan Training website is a beginning, I hope. Sometimes I think it is too cheesy, but the cartoon hero theme is something that matches my personality and creativity. Perhaps I launched the website too early, before I had the time to put into it. After all, I am teaching full time right now and will be next school year too. This summer I would like to get the ball rolling toward my post-secondary teaching career and add many tutorials to the site.
Besides TechMan Training, I have a few other irons in the fire, as they say. In the spring I will be teaching a Prezi course at Northeast Iowa Community College's Town Clock Business Center in Dubuque, Iowa. Also, it looks like I will be teaching some type of technology professional development course for teachers this summer through the Regional Office of Education #8 in Freeport, IL. I'll actually team-teach the class with a long-time colleague, and we are just beginning the planning stage for the course.
Clicking the send button on the intent-to-retire email to my superintendent took only a smidge of courage and a millisecond of hesitation, but I am excited about my decision! My wife and I are now "empty-nesters" which should give me plenty of time to get this career off the ground!
