Instructional technology facilitator Eddie Sawyer, ITS, ITF

Years with VPS: 23 

Most memorable career experiences: Seeing the progression of technology since I started as a student at Peter S. Ogden Elementary in 1980. I started with the first Apple IIe lab and now see students building free throw–shooting robots and carrying iPads.

One thing I’ve learned: I’ve met with lots of people in other districts over the years, and it’s clear that VPS has some amazing wizards behind the scenes keeping it all up and running.

Three words that describe me: Creative, snarky, fixer.

When I’m not working, I: Fish and spend time with the family.

Eddie is the Classified Employee of the Year for the Educational Service District 112 region and has been instrumental in VPS’ nationally recognized weLearn 1:1 program.
