The Life and Times of Jeff Amerson 

I am a native Houstonian with a Bachelor of Sciences (majors: Biology and Psychology) from Houston Baptist University (HBU) and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Houston.

I currently work as an assistant principal at Roy P. Benavidez Elementary School in the Houston Independent School District. Before becoming an assistant principal, I taught science at The Rice School, Pershing Middle School, and Jackson Middle School.

I love education and working with both kids and teachers. My goal is to help teachers and parents overcome their fears (shyness) when it comes to computing so that they can 1) keep up with their kids, 2) learn together with their kids, 3) learn some things on their own, too. Their are many opportunities for teachers to use the web, whether in their actual classroom, or in their lesson planning, or just to get some ideas; however, it is VERY time consuming to sit in front of your computer for hours. If you are anything like me, you think, "Well, it would be nice to see what is on-line, but I just don't have the time." Use this site as a place to start. Also, use your students. If you are teaching a unit next month on Peruvian dung beetles, give your students advance notice and allow them extra points if they bring you interesting web sites that you can use in class.
