  • Gary's pictureGary Ackerman has a long and extensive career in education. He began his career teaching middle school science and math, and was frequently using computers with his students. Within a few years, he was the "technology-guru" in the schools where he worked and accepted increasing responsibility for technology planning and training. Gary's duties have included co-teaching primary school classes, teaching calculus-based physics, supporting online and hybrid learning, and managing enterprise information systems for schools.

    Currently, Gary serves as the flexible pathways coordinator for a K-12 school in Vermont. In that role, he helps students include college courses, workforce training, internships, independent studies, and similar activities into their high school experience.

    Gary has provided leadership for a wide range of committees and groups, including the Technology Committee and the Board of Directors of both the New England League of Middle Schools and the Vermont Information Technology Association for the Advancement of Learning. In recent years, Gary has provided leadership for the New England Educational Research Organization. Further, Gary's writing has appeared in several publications, and he is drafting his second book; his first book was published by University Press of America in 2015.
