Ted Nellen
I am a high school English teacher at a NYC public high school. I began teaching high school English in 1974 in a private school. During 1979-81, I was an editor at Harcourt Brace Jovonovich. After rejoining education, I acquired my first computer English class in 1983 and also acauired my first email account. I began using the Internet in my class in 1986. In 1992 I connected my 34 computer classroom to the net and began teaching CyberEnglish.
Currently I am in a doctoral program and have the idealist goal of assisting the NYC BOE in preparing its 200,000 teachers to use the net. I am an Internet evangelist and have written extensively on it and practiced it. This is why I am so enthusiastic about this Committee. It is through my writings where you can best learn about me.
