Ryan Rasar, Nevada Virtual Academy

I live in Henderson, NV and am the STEM Coordinator for Nevada Virtual Academy, an online public charter school. I'm passionate about integrating STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) across grades K-12 and teaching students the skills necessary to be creators of the technology of tomorrow, not just consumers of the technology of today. I am an advocate of school choice and believer that students need help and encouragement from mentors, teachers, parents, family and friends to develop their unique talents. On the weekends you'll find me on a golf course, relaxing with my family, or cheering for the Seattle Seahawks.
