Mr. Jeffrey Stafford - Technology/Computer Literacy

Welcome to the Technology Class.  My name is Jeffrey Stafford I am originally from Southern California. I was raised in San Diego and moved to Las Vegas in 2007.  My first career was in Professional Theatre working mainly as a Stage, Tour and Production Manager for Opera and Theatre Companies in Southern California.  During my theatre career I had the opportunity to experience nearly all the aspects of American Theatre; from working “on the road” with Rock and Roll bands to working productions on Broadway, and The Kennedy Center.  During my theatre career, I specialized in educational theatre for over a decade.    I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and a Masters in Education in Instructional Design.  I am a member of the Kappa Delta Pi, Education Honor Society.   The 2019-2020 school year will be my third year of teaching at Southern Highlands Preparatory School.
