My job
Charles C. Gates Director of Innovative Learning, with Graland since 2011

In a nutshell
Martin works to ensure that Graland students have access to and are learning from the best technology available in education. He also helps teachers integrate design thinking principles into their lessons. “I always want to explore new educational technologies and investigate best practices in 21st century learning. This is an exciting time to be in education because the tools are constantly advancing.”
 
Career journey
Studied at University of Northern Colorado and taught for several years at Denver Academy before pursuing an interest in technology just as the field was burgeoning in the early 1990s. Worked extensively in software design, networking and database development, bringing cutting edge concepts to reality in corporate and private school settings.

Professional passion
“My passion for my work comes from the students. My favorite thing about my job is working directly with students and seeing their excitement at failing on the way to succeeding. I love watching them take their knowledge to new levels.”

Personal side
Martin once worked as a freelance grip in Nashville where he filmed music videos with country stars like Vince Gill and Tanya Tucker.
