I'm Aaron, a Media Arts / Technology teacher for a K-8 Creative & Performing Arts Academy.
Before I did this, I was a Visual Arts teacher.
I'm very much into #DIY, #STEM, #STEAM, #DnD, #photography, the #Maker movement, and the idea that artists should be fairly compensated for the work they do (vs reposting said work without even attribution).
My politics lean left, but I don't talk about that much here.
I'm a widower.
I talk about games on @Crash.
Things I Try To Not Do (A non-comprehensive list)
*"Follow-for-follow." Life's too short to clutter my timeline.
*Post, boost, or favorite profanities. Yes, even the ones included in super-insightful posts. My students can find me.
*Post, boost, or favorite copyright infringement or endorsements of the same. Copyright law needs reform, sure, but it is still used to protect artists. If you're punching down and up at the same time, You're still punching down.

Be excellent to each other and 🍍 on!
Morning on the Lake
There's a lot of memories I have with this old box.
It was my first Windows tower, ever. (Before that I much preferred MacOS).
I used it to play games alongside my wife, including Warcraft, Minecraft, Diablo, SWTOR, and the now defunct City of Steam.
That said, it will be of much more use in the hands of my students than it would be as a bit of nostalgia in my closet.
Donors Choose, caps
Maybe it seems like lately I'm only talking about my Donors Choose project but thanks to some very gracious donations we're ONLY $42 FROM BEING FUNDED!
