My name is Scott Holcomb, and I’m just a Teacher! Currently, I’m having too much fun serving as an “Educational Technology Specialist” for Memphis City Schools in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee. Don’t let the big title fool you- I’m just a teacher on assignment. I work with about forty elementary schools helping to get teachers, administrators, staff and students on board the “use your computer as an extension of yourself” bus. Prior to taking on this position way back in 2002 (i think), I was a mild mannered, new 3rd grade teacher, then I moved up in the world and taught 4th grade- and finally, it happened- my principal at that time spotted a computer in my classroom and asked where it came from and I being new to teaching thought I had done something wrong (flashbacks of being an elementary school student started rolling back into my head). She asked if I knew how to use it (technology) and when I answered yes, the rest is history. From that day forward I was known as Mr. Holcomb- the computer teacher and around these parts, that’s hard to find! Why? We don’t really exist according to the district (shhhhhhh). I’ve spent more than eight years working with students and teachers and it brings me to work each Monday morning- I’m not kidding, I really enjoy the work I do and the group of seven other colleagues I call friends.
