"Kyle is indeed the vision of a 21st century educator. Kyle regularly uses social networks and new media to solve problems, to share resources, and to develop as a professional. Yet, these new technologies do not consume Kyle. He has achieved, at this very early stage in his career, the ability to balance the affordances of new technologies with thoughtful instructional strategies. He isn’t carried away with the glitter of new tools. Rather, he uses his sharp, critical mind to think deeply about the impact of such tools and both the benefits and drawbacks of their implementation. It is a skill that I have not seen in many tech-savvy, experienced educators, and certainly not in an individual of such limited classroom experience."

Dr. Alec Couros (@courosa)

"During his tenure at MICDS, Kyle constantly sought formal and informal observations as a source of development. He pushed for more details and did not settle for generalizations such as “everything looks good”. More importantly, Kyle demonstrated that he is highly critical of his own teaching and interactions with students and values collaborating with colleagues. We often had conversations about situations in the classroom or discussed lesson ideas before and after their implementation. These dialogues were not only beneficial to his teaching, but they helped strengthen my own approach to the materials I use."
