    Welcome to my home page!  As you can see in my title, I am a Application Specialist at Exeter Township School District.  In my position, I maintain the "behind the scenes" parts of the various web-based systems we have in the district.  One of my main responsibilities is the Exeter web page.  We are currently using Schoolwires CMS.  I use the free Microsoft Expression Web software for some editing of websites (and occasionally Adobe Dreamweaver) and Adobe Acrobat for forms creation.  For photo editing, I use the free Paint.net program, with occasional use of Photoshop.  As you can see, I try to use free tools whenever possible.  Some other free tools I have found useful are Microsoft Web apps (for online Powerpoint slide shows), Google Docs (for online forms and surveys) and the awesome Screencast-o-matic for online tutorials and screen capturing. 
    In addition to the website, I also support Performance Plus (data warehouse), Renaissance Place and Dibels.
    Check out what's going on in Exeter on our Facebook page or on Twitter.


    I use Google Classrooms and Schoology to organize all my "classes" for Staff Development.  Both allow for organized Discussions, Announcements and Content Creation.  I can take all my resources from Google Docs, Word, Powerpoint, YouTube and organize it on one location.  I have made portions of the following classes available below....
