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 12th year teaching at Krueger Middle School and also my 12th year teaching in North East ISD. Including my time in other districts, I have been a classroom teacher for 15 years in San Antonio. In past years, I have taught Math on the Krueger campus but have been able to teach Technology Applications for 9 of the 11 years I've been here. My classes this year will all be "Technology Applications" with 6th grade students enrolled in the Space and Engineering Technologies Academy here at Krueger. The main emphasis of my teaching is "How can we use technology to make our lives better?" We will study Technology Applications as a means to that end. My aim is for all students to leave my class with technology 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 Communications Inc. in the past and that eventually led 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 technology will take us this year. We are going to share a great experience!
