Mark Schlaudt

I am a proud father of the most amazing little boy and husband to an incredible wife. I am also a 3rd grade teacher, working hard to show kids just how much fun you can have while learning. Technology is more than a passion for me, it’s an obsession. I am a tech nerd and proud of it! Throughout my career I have worked to infuse my love of technology into my teaching practices to enhance the educational experience I provide. I have seen first hand how transformational technology can be in a classroom. This is why it's my mission to provide teachers with a resource, to assist in transforming their own classrooms.

Eric Nephew

I am a proud husband and father of two incredible boys. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family hiking or biking. One of my favorite things to do is spend time reading with my children. Professionally, I have worked as a teacher and leader for the past fourteen years at Rockford Public Schools. In addition to teaching, I currently serve as both lead teacher and technology coach for my school building. I received both my Bachelors of the Arts in Education and Masters Degree in K-12 Administration from Michigan State University. My love of educational technology has led me to developing resources and curriculum to enhance and transform both teaching and learning. My mission is to provide the resources so everyone can find the joy and passion in learning something new.
