Conducting class

Doug is the bombastic rock star front man of a never-ending education funk machine about to start his first year at a new school in the Portland area teaching 5th grade. In addition to Oregon, where he's taught 3rd and 4th grades, he taught 3rd, 4th, and 6th in Hawaii and 3rd in California. Doug has presented at CUE Rock Star Camps, SDE Conferences, ISTE, and as a professional development presenter at multiple schools. He's the author of two teaching-centric books- He's the Weird Teacher and THE Teaching Text (You're Welcome) and the editor of CUE's blog. He's very handsome, but modest about it.
