About Dallas Turner

Dallas is an “educational enhancement engineer” (also known as a tech mentor) in the Rockford Public Schools, District #205. His official title in the district is Educational Technologies Innovation Teacher and he has been an #eDTech trainer for over 20 years and a tech coach for two and a half years.
In his free time, Dallas plays with electronics and enjoys science fiction movies and science history books. He coached five teams to the finals of the Team America Rocketry Challenge and has presented several times at IDEAcon, ICE and the IETC. He has been the president of the Kishawaukee chapter of IDEA and has worked part-time as an ass’t pastor (they never decided if that was “assistant” or “associate”).
Dallas is a creative person, but not don’t expect him to draw something that you will recognize; he loves to find different ways to solve problems and loves to flip problems on their head to find a new way of looking at them. He loves spreadsheets and finding ways to get them to do what he wants. His goal as a tech coach is to save teachers 2 minutes a day.
