The EVSC had the opportunity to honor an individual today at the EVSC Administration Building, who has gone above and beyond his day to day responsibilities to design websites for a variety of purposes throughout the EVSC.
Jerrad Gleim, a specialist in integrating curriculum and technology for the EVSC, was recognized as the March Cause for Applause Award winner in the EVSC.
Nominator Sara DeWitt, senior communication and creative design coordinator for the EVSC, said that Gleim spent considerable time and effort to develop the infrastructure of the new EVSC Employee Website and portals, as a new employee communication tool through the Office of Communication. “Although creating websites is not really his responsibility, he has always been ready and willing to help,” she said. “I have emailed Jerrad at all hours of the day (and night) and he is always quick to respond with the exact answer I need, all while doing his real job – helping our teachers integrate technology into their classrooms.”
Gleim has also developed a curriculum mapping website for teachers, so that they can plan their lessons making sure that State Academic Standards are being taught at approximately the same time throughout the district; and a World History Curriculum website page, which is allowing teachers to teach the class without the use of a textbook. He maintains the ICATS website – a resource used by teachers in the EVSC for their curriculum-technology needs.
Gleim has been an employee in the EVSC since the 2000-01 school year.
