A Go Figure Debut for a Digital Teacher Who is New!


Ian has been a classroom teacher 12 years in two states (Virginia and Massachusetts) and has worked with students in a general education and advanced academic setting in grades 3-5. What he loves most about teaching is inspiring awe and wonderment.  Ian pushes his students to think beyond the standards, to question the world around them, and to seek out answers to their wonderings. He encourages his students to utilize technology, to demonstrate their understanding and to showcase their findings. His classroom has a certain buzz of excitement while students work on their latest problem-based learning activity, such as delivering the news for the southeast region, or researching a signature dish for their Midwest Cooking Star episode. His students enjoy many healthy, competitive digital games to review and reinforce concepts.

Ian is a soon-to-be father of four, who loves to spend the summers on the beaches of Massachusetts, the falls hiking and exploring the outdoors, and the winter months building snowmen and sledding. His family is a running family, with a combined 15 marathons between him and his wife.
