David has a keen sense of presenting complex and complicated concepts in a way that people can understand and embrace. That ability has allowed him to engage in a plethora of presentations across multiple venues throughout the United States (Annual National mNET Conference in Minneapolis, MN: Hayes Graduate Research Forum in Columbus, OH: Association of Teacher Educators in Chicago, IL, Dallas, TX, and New Orleans, LA: University Council for Education Administration in Orlando, FL: Midwest Education Research Association in Columbus, OH). His focus for these presentations has always centered on how to be a better leader and teacher so that students are given every possible opportunity to achieve their fullest academic potential.    

Collaborating with colleagues to publish articles on teaching and leadership also demonstrates David’s ability to create and facilitate environments of cooperation and consensus. Publishing in multiple venues (Journal for the National Association for Alternative Certification, In Proceedings of Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference, Principal’s Office, International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation) illustrates the flexibility he has in reaching multiple audiences within the field of education.
