Going to watch the movie Boyhood over the next 17 months, 10 minutes at a time and keep a blog about it describing my experience. Figured Richard Linklater had the brilliant idea of filming the movie over the course of 12 years, the least I can invest is a year and a half.

I've just started the "Boyhood Project." I am going to watch 10 minutes of the movie 'Boyhood' over the next 17 months and describe what I see and experience from the basis of my current life situation. Richard Linklater, producer and director, filmed Boyhood over the course of 12 years. I guess I just figured that he deserved a bit of a creative response to the film. Please offer your comments and thoughts on my blog.

Story
Tagline
Looking to change the world and hoping for help doing so.
Introduction
Innovation, exhilaration and education.  I am a Technology Staff Developer, a social studies teacher, an entrepreneur and a father who wants to change the way we think about our local and global solutions to the challenges that we are faced with in the 21st Century.

As President and CEO of BabysittingBarter.com, I am seeking to revolutionize the way Moms, Dads and caregivers across the country do babysitting. 

As a social studies teacher, I have piloted "How Could War Look Different?" an online template for classrooms around the world to collaborate re-enact and re-examine the wars of our past.  I have also championed the Akidemy Awards at Great Neck South Middle School on Long Island, where students create mini-documentaries answering the question "What is the greatest challenge facing the United States today?"

As an educator, I have brought together over 60 middle and high schools and 500 students and teachers on Long Island to participate in a Pay It Forward Conference in order to spread the message of kindness.

In 2010, I was named Tech & Learning's Educator Leader of the Year for my work in the classroom and designing and implementing "The Connected Classroom" where I was able to secure funding to bring 1 to 1 netbooks and 1 to 2 Ipod Touches to my team.

I am a Flat Classroom Certified teacher and have recently set my sights on re-inventing the concept of a textbook, moving toward a flipped model where students can engage in an Interactive Textbook Ecosystem where student learning and assignments are geared toward student learning styles and where content can be created and discussed in real time with other students around the world.
Bragging rights
2010 Tech & Learning Educator Leader of the Year, father of four beautiful children, never mistaken for someone who thinks normally.

  • Great Neck South Middle School
    Technology Evangelist, Technology Staff Developer, Social Studies Teacher, 2000 - present
    An amazing institution where the Assistant Superintendent wrote my letter of resignation with no union representation, after being a nationally award-winning teacher for 14 years in the Great Neck Schools where on the first day of school, after not getting much sleep the night before as my Department Chair at 11:20 p.m. the night before the first day of school, said that my lesson plan on Federalism was not fit for a high school due to the fact that my department chair emailed me at 11:20 p.m. the night before and said my lesson on Federalism was not fit for a High School classroom. As the A.S. was writing my letter of resignation, in a scene seemingly straight out of the movie American Beauty, he asked me if I had had a sexual identity change during my sabbatical. I said no, I didn't believe so, but was certainly curious why he asked me that while writing my letter of resignation.

Blows me away that the records for all of Nassau County do not have a sprinkler system. In the 1950s, the building burned down and they lost all of their records. It would make sense if they corrected this mistake and put in some sprinklers. God forbid they ever have a fire. Common sense?
