Wade, LAN/WAN Service Technician
Brandon is one of those technicians who manages to squeeze a life
in between his professional responsibilities! Every spring he runs a
fly fishing guide service on the Cumberland River, where he fishes
from a wooden drift boat he and Lafayette TRT Mike Wlosinski built
in Mike's garage. Brandon ties his own flies, and as you can see at
right, they serve him well.
Brandon's relationship with the world of fishing was established
early. He was born in Somerset Regional Hospital, and spent the next 18 years in Russell County with
lots of quality time
on Lake Cumberland and the Cumberland River. He is a
Russell County High School graduate, and has recently completed a Bachelors in Mathematics from the University of Kentucky.
Early in his academic career he worked in the Lexmark co-op program
as an inkjet printer software technician, testing for software bugs.
While there, he also learned PC repair and network management. He
joined Fayette County in 2000 as a Microcomputer Specialist after
three years at Lexmark, and was subsequently promoted to LAN/WAN
manager. He pursues those responsibilities at Tates Creek High
Brandon and his wife, Julie, live in Lexington. They
welcomed their first child, Ava, into the world on August 23rd of
last year. As a new father, his life has gotten even fuller!
Baxter, Technology Resource Teacher
Baxter also joined the ranks of new parent this school year,
returning in December from maternity leave! Cammy and husband, Todd,
had their first child, Sagan Marie, born on September 9th.
Cammy herself was born in Alexandria, Virginia,
but moved to Kentucky where she spent her childhood between
Lexington, Shelbyville, Louisville, & Frankfort, and graduating
from Franklin County High School. She has received a Bachelors in
Elementary Education from the University of Kentucky, and a Masters
from Georgetown College, during which she obtained a certificate in
Mathematics and Science for grades 5-9.
last academic credential helped her gain a math and science teaching
position at Fayette County's School for the Creative and Performing
Arts (SCAPA). During her five year tenure there, she was the
Elementary Science Representative, served on the School Based
Decision Making (SBDM) council, joined Phi Delta Kappa, and was
featured both in the Teacher Spotlight, and in videos of technology
integration best practices for the Stages
of Teaching with Technology project. This fall, she joined the
Office of Instructional Technology as a TRT, and besides her old
school, SCAPA, she serves Ashland Elementary and Russell Cave
Elementary in that capacity.
When not working and taking care of Sagan, Mrs.
Baxter loves to read, visit family, have lunch with her grandparents
during the summer, and sit on the front porch and watch the
hummingbirds, deer, and rabbits frolic and play in the field across
the street. She, Todd, and Sagan live in Georgetown.
