Congratulations go to Andrew Conyers, who serves as Network Engineer/Technology Integration Specialist/Technology Resource teacher for the Rowan County School District. Mr. Conyers recently received the Outstanding Technology Support Award from the Kentucky Society for Technology in Education or KySTE.
Nominated by Brandy Carver, science teacher at Rowan County Senior High School, Conyers was recognized for his knowledge of computer systems as well as his efforts into collaboration and cooperation with the teachers, staff and other district personnel. Whether working at an individual school, such as when he was assigned to work at Rowan County Senior High School, or working on District systems, Mr. Conyers exhibits both his knowledge and forward thinking, helping teachers meet technology needs. By setting up the online payroll stub system, Mr. Conyers is helping the District save paper and be more environmentally conscious.
In the narrative that Mrs. Carver wrote nominating Andrews Conyers for the award, she spoke of his work helping teachers meet professional development needs in the area of technology. “Andrew saw a need for technology professional development, so he created and coordinated the Rowan County Schools Technology Conference as well as collaborated with Region 7 KySTE members on a regional technology conference.”
While his current duties include maintaining servers and the technology infrastructure for the District, training and coaching teachers on using Infinite campus and their teacher websites, and assisting those using the cafeteria management system, MUNIS, and computer-based standardized testing systems, these duties in no way interfere with his ability to be patient and understanding with the teachers and staff.
“Andrew exemplifies the qualities of an excellent technology support personnel and works daily to improve technology in our district,” said Brandy Carver. “He is an asset to our program and we are continually appreciative of the hard work and effort that he puts into making our district better.”
Congratulations, Andrew Conyers. This is an honor that is well-deserved.
