Hi this is Jon Schwartz. I've taught grades 1-6 since 1997 in California public schools and have credentials in general and special education. I have 2 educational websites that show my work with integrating music (http://www.kidslikeblues.org) and technology (http://kidslikeblogs.org) into the classroom. My work has been featured on KPBS and I received "Tech Hero of 2011 Award" from the CA State Senate and the Technology Training Foundation of America.
I enjoy working with children in diverse cultural settings, and I find great satisfaction in passing along my passion for learning, technology, graphic design, photography, writing, adventure, and self-determination to my students. I am also a professional photographer and journalist and my photography website is http://www.bluewaterjon.com
