Mr. Charles Gentles
Hi, my name is Charles Gentles and I want to welcome you to my staff page. This year marks the beginning of my 8th year teaching at Krueger Middle School and also my 8th year teaching in North East ISD. Including my time in other districts, I have been a classroom teacher for 11 years in San Antonio. In past years, I have taught Math on the Krueger campus but have been able to teach Technology Applications for 5 of the 7 years I've been here. In a majority of my classes this year I will be Exploring Multimedia with 6th grade students in the Krueger School of Applied Technologies. I will also be teaching 7th and 8th grade students Principles of Information Techology; a high school credit course. The main emphasis of my teaching is "How can technology make our lives better?" We will study Technology Applications and Information Techology as means to that end. My aim is for all students to leave my class with tools, techniques, and knowledge they will use throughout their lives...to better their lives.
I graduated from Rice University, in Houston, TX, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in three majors: Sociology, Behavioral Science, and Anthropology. I also worked as a computer programmer for Clear Channel Communication Inc. in the past and that eventually lead me to teaching technology.
I enjoy teaching middle school students and am particularly fond of having them crossover from being taught by me, to finding their own answers. Students can then take that knowledge to enrich their lives and the lives of their family and friends.
I am truly excited to see where inspiration, innovation, and our awesome technology will take us this year. We are going to have a great experience!
