As the director of technology for the Vail, Ariz. district, Mark Breen helps students and staff overcome their fears of technology and see its applications in their daily work -- a job he likens to that of an orchestra director, who helps all the instruments play harmoniously together. His work in the district includes introducing all students to computer science and coding, improving back-office HR functions, and using technology to improve how teachers get feedback on their work.
