Degrees and Certifications:
So, I'm Nick - pretty basic guy. I try to keep things a simple as possible while utilizing every resource I have - and that's what led me here. I am a USMC Veteran (Ohh-Rah!), spending four years serving in the USMC Band at Quantico, VA. As part of the band, I was a supply NCO and also helped with the sound equipment when we were on the road. During my years in service, I met my wife, Kristi, who is now also a teacher in Pearland ISD. She is a Pearland graduate and when my service was done, she brought me home. I am originally from Pennsylvania, and I love it here in Texas! When I moved to the Houston area, I used my military benifits to enroll at the University of Houston where I graduated in December of 2014 with my Bachelors in Music Education. I was hired on by Pearland ISD in January of 2015 as an Assistant Band Director at Pearland JH South and Sam Jamison MS. I transitioned to the Educational Technology department in September of 2018 and I have completley "geeked out" on the tech. stuff. I love helping teachers understand the tools at their disposal, and helping to enable them to use technology fully and fluidly in their classrooms. I love watching students learn and explore in ways that weren't possible when I was their ages. If there is anything I can do to answer questions or help with technology in the classroom, feel free to reach out!
