Start date: May 23, 2016
Job title: Technology Integration Specialist
Describe what you do at MOREnet: Our team provides our members with professional development and training opportunities to enhance the education experience. I collaborate with MOREnet staff as well as educators around. I’m excited to get the opportunity each day to work to learn more about education tools and resources that can help improve the learning opportunities for teachers and students.
What’s your favorite hobby? I am a passionate supporter of the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals, as well as my beloved Missouri Tigers. This mild addiction takes up a great deal of my spare time. If there are any minutes left over in the day, I might try squeezing in a game of Memory or Wild Animal Trivia with my wife and daughter.
What did you want to be when you grew up? I was pretty sure at an early age that I was going to be a vet. I found out that I did not just get to play with baby puppies all day as a vet, so I changed my major in elementary school to being a cowboy.
Anything else we should know about you? My wonderful wife and I were blessed to add our son Winter to add to the family along with his big sister Tatum. The four of us are thick as thieves and pretty much roll together to do about everything.
August 2018 Update: Joey and his wife Kortney now have a family of 5! Children include their oldest daughter, Tatum and two sons- Winter and Jasper!
