Technology Integration Specialist and Director / Speaker / Workshop Leader / Conference Leader: Miami Device
A bachelor of Music Education with an emphasis in choral conducting was Felix’s entry into education. After three years as a music teacher, he decided to pursue another interest of his and got certified as a computer network engineer. Although he thought he was leaving education for a business career in the computer field, fate had another plan. He ended up teaching computer classes and found a new passion – Educational Technology.
Felix is currently the Director of Technology at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Day School in Coconut Grove, Florida and he is the host of Miami Device, a learning event presented by St. Stephen’s. He leads a team of three amazing Technology Integration Specialists and works with the best Head of School and administration team anyone could hope for.
St. Stephen’s has gained much attention in the Educational Technology world due to hard work by the technology team, enthusiastic teachers, supportive administration, and excellent professional development. This success is measured by the most important component of any school initiative – the students! Learners at St. Stephen’s are excited about daily life at school and are authentically engaged by their enthusiastic and inspiring teachers.
“It’s a dream job!”
As an educator, Felix quickly learned the importance of sharing what works well in the classroom. Becoming part of a professional learning network (PLN) became important to him when he began attending conferences, connecting with other like-minded professionals, and learning from great educators all around the world. Presenting quickly became an enjoyable way for Felix to share and connect. He has now led many workshops, presentations, sessions, panel discussions, courses, and even a couple keynotes.
