Chad Everett currently serves as a middle school literacy coach in north Mississippi. He is a self-proclaimed literacy and technology geek. His knowledge of effective technology practices to enhance student learning, coupled with his passion for literacy, makes him a significant resource in the school districts he works. He previously served as an instructional technology specialist and educator in student discipline where he examined the power of restorative discipline practices to transform the student discipline process, and he continues to bring all he has learned from his previous roles to his current practice with students. Everett is also deeply involved with community adult literacy, believing the change needed to transform education extends beyond the school’s walls.
