About MrKindergarten

Yes, I really am a kindergarten teacher, and yes, I have a MakerBot in my classroom, and yes, I teach my students the basics of 3D modeling and desktop fabrication (In case you're interested, here's a blog I wrote on how and why goo.gl/H5HL41).

I am a former Humboldt County Teacher of the Year, MakerBot Educator, PBS Digital Innovator, and proud geek dad. I also co-facilitate a monthly Next Generation Science Standards collaborative for K-12 teachers for my county office of education.

I'd love to connect with other elementary school teachers utilizing 3D printing in the classroom.
