“Even if you decide not to choose, you still have made a choice.”
Lee Keller works for the Single School Culture Initiative in the School District of Palm Beach County. His primary project is a Florida DOE online program for professional development in all 67 counties. The program has called on his expertise in curriculum, course design, creativity, and customer service. Daily objectives require the use of Adobe® Dreamweaver®, Fireworks®, Adobe Connect™, Presenter, and other Adobe products to support participants and maintain highly engaging content to maximize successful learning. He supports administrators, staff, teachers, and students at more than 170 district schools on an array of technology projects and software, including Adobe titles.
An educator since the mid-1970s with more than 19 years in the classroom, Keller has taught at all levels from first grade to college. He has been an educational technology programs specialist in his district since 1997. He founded the PC Rams, a West Palm Beach community-oriented computer club. In 1999, he drove his school district’s evaluation of web design products, a process that led the district to standardize on software from Macromedia (a company since acquired by Adobe). He designed and delivered training in various Macromedia products and, in 2001, created the district’s first online technology courses using Macromedia software.
Keller’s professional passion is getting technology-resistant educators excited about integrating technology into their curriculums. He is very involved in community activities and founded 360Riders, a motorcycle group of approximately 200 members, and 360Bikers Foundation, Inc., a charity that raises money for those in need through motorcycle-centric events.
