About Me

Welcome to jasonmkern.com

I am the Assistant Head of School for Innovation and Learning for an independent school in Tyler, Tx. I have been an educator for 25 years. I am currently a board member for the Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS) and have been amongst other things an OESIS Intrepid Innovator, Google Certified Innovator, Powerful Learning Practice Fellow, curator of TEDxYouth@ISASOakridge. I have also presented at and/or served on the planning committee for several conferences including Educon, NAIS, Flipped Conference, ICG Re-Imagining School, Lausanne Learning Institute and ISAS Teacher Conference.

I also have another passion and that is for wine. Here, I will combine my passion for education and my passion for wine to offer insights into what I find most interesting today. My main areas of focus will be the Willamette Valley of Oregon, Napa Valley in California as I like to drink wine from places I have been and wineries I have visited. I will also discuss my journey in pursuing the WSET Diploma.
