Craig!  Congratulations.  You are such a brilliant guy and just about the nicest too.  Thank you for all that you've taught us and for your patience.  Best Wishes always,

Wow.. Craig, enjoy!  You have been an inspiration for all of us.  I suspect you will stay active and we’ll still be seeing you from time to time, but congratulations my friend.

 

Well deserved.

Subject: Could it be true? Is Craig really retiring

 

There is a special guy I know who is spending his last day as a K12 school network administrator.  A guy who I met on a Vermont School IT Listserv a  long time ago,  before it was housed by UVM - and was run from a BBS that he set up to be run WITH students!   I'm thinking that we should ask him to call one last PIZZA meeting sometimes soon! What do you think? 

 

 


I remember being jealous of CVU having one of the first SCHOOl IT  positions ever, when most of us were teachers setting up and maintaining computers in our classrooms.  

 

But Craig was always willing to answer my questions. I'd bump into him at conferences and pick his brain about things like "why my webpages were displaying outside of schools with an relative link, but I needed an absolute link to make them appear inhouse" 

 

I'll never forget the day of the Cyber Security Conference where he pulled in next to my car on his motor cycle and greeted me and made me feel welcomed even though I was 'just a teacher'  wondering if she belonged there. 

He always made everyone feel welcomed to grow their skills  and worked so hard not only to provide ACCESS to everyone, but to empower them with new skills. 
These very characteristics earned him the Frank Watson Award in 2011

 

 

Little did I know that years later we would find ourselves single at the same time and he would start courting me ;-)   

Which turned out very well for me.

Even lead to a fun workshop that we co-presented at VErmontFest one year called The Marriage Between EdTech and IT

 

I know he's probably busy today  passing on the keys and passwords to the systems he has set up at St. Albans City School, but I couldn't let today pass without some type of acknowledgement that this is a big day for CRAIG LYNDES!
