MMFS strives to support students, faculty, and the educational community in the use of technology to aid in the learning process. This goes well beyond facilitating mandated or recommended assistive technology - an Educational Technology Integrator works to match students and faculty with the best technologies to not just enable the learning process, but enrich it. Whenever possible, the goal is to provide detailed and targeted instruction to assist someone learning the tools/process for creating their own content, rather than simply gathering needs, and creating the content for the student or teacher. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a passion for education, working with High School teachers, and working with a team of IT professionals dedicated to the mission of educating LD Students.

Facilitate installation, support and training for faculty to effectively utilize content creation tools integratable with the interactive whiteboards in every classroom. The goal is that every teacher can deliver a multisensory, accessible curriculum.
