Dave Guymon

Online middle school teacher & educational blogger from Idaho Falls, Idaho

Hello. I'm Dave. I'm an online middle school teacher in Idaho Falls, Idaho and a graduate student pursuing my master's degree in Education Technology at Boise State University. As an educator and lifelong learner, I have developed a passion for connecting with people and their ideas. As a result, I've had opportunities to travel around the country to facilitate professional development sessions on effective technology use in the classroom. However, one of my favorite ways to share my insights on education and technology trends is through writing. You can read more of my writing by reading my book, "If You Can't Fail, It Doesn't Count" and by visiting my blog, DaveLovesTechnology.com. I also encourage you to connect with me by visiting my social media links. See you online.
