David Paszkiewicz is a Southern California educator and geek. Over his career as a secondary language arts and technology teacher, he has taught classes ranging from British Literature to New Media Design, Mass Communication to Computer Programming, Public Speaking to Mythology. He began a live, daily news show produced entirely by middle schoolers in Arcadia, a program which he managed for 14 years, and has recently outfitted a new TV program at La Canada High School. He was happy when Project-Based Learning became a hot topic, as he had struggled for years to put a name to his style of teaching. He produced a feature-length documentary on Rubik’s Cube speedcubers, and can still solve the puzzle in about a minute (he's no speedcuber). A world traveller, he has taught students in Japan, Europe, and Africa, and has recently begun his most daunting task yet: as an instructional coach. David is a Google Certified Educator (1 & 2) and a Google Certified Trainer.
