Kyle is a Math Consultant with the Greater Essex County School Board in Windsor, ON. When Kyle stated teaching in 2006 he quickly discovered that writing on the chalkboard and using traditional teaching methods were not going to engage his students. He starting integrating technology into his teaching and found that students were engaged and learning. In 2011, thanks to TLLP funding, he began integrating iPads into his Math classroom. At the same time, he started a blog to record his process and experiences. His work in Math has flourished and has led him to becoming a sought after presenter. His little blog, "Tap Into Teen Minds", has now turned into a common place to visit to learn more about teaching Mathematics more effectively.
