Steven began teaching in 2003 the Gateway Prep. Academy at the Kennedy Learning Center in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools in Winston-Salem, NC. There he worked with 7th and 8th grade students who were more than 2 years off of grade level in the hopes they could return to their regular school to be successful. He then moved to Clemmons Middle School in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools where he taught 7th and 8th grade Science for 5 years. He was part of a pilot program that “looped” his 7th and 8th grade students. While at Clemmons he served as Team Leader, Grade-Level Chairman, Department Chairman, School Improvement Team Member and School Improvement Team Chairman. He left Clemmons Middle to serve as the District Instructional Technologist for Stokes County Schools. There, he was responsible for all technology professional development programs in the district. While in Stokes County he brought notoriety to the small, rural district for his innovative use of technology and social media in elementary and middle school classrooms. In January, 2010, he returned to Clemmons Middle School as the Instructional Technologist, working with teachers and students on technology integration.
He has been a presenter at several area technology conferences and meetings including NCTIES, North Carolina’s largest educational technology conference, and a Special Speaker for Promethean at their opening Gala for their first Promethean Academy in North America and at the ISTE 2010 Conference in Denver.
Recently he was selected to be a panelist at the #140 Conference in Los Angeles at the famous Kodak Theater in October, 2010. Organized by Vonage founder, Jeff Pulver, he discussed the impact of Twitter and other social media on education. As part of the conference he was one of the first recipients of the NOW Award, recognizing the “Movers and Shakers” in the world of Social Media. Steven returned to the #140 Conference in April, 2010 as a featured panelist, this time in New York City.
Also in 2009 Steven was voted the Most Influential Tweeter as part of the Annual Edublog awards and was a co-recipient of the Most Influential Series of Tweets for his part in helping to create #edchat, a weekly education discussion on Twitter that boosts over 1000 weekly participants.
