About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Biography
Born to a couple who are Persian and Oregonian...raised in Iran until the revolution in 1979 and then in Southern California until I went to University in Eugene. Parents were both educators which inspired me to become a teacher. I have been working in the field of special education - specifically students with intellectual disabilities for 15 years. Was awarded a teacher of the year award in 2006 - 2007 by USA Today. I have been teaching at Bend High School for 10 years. I am married to Stephanie and have four children. Two biological boys and two adopted girls. Ages - 10, 8, 7 and 4. I co-founded a non-profit Education for Chinese Orphans (EChO) in 2008 and our board creates schools for special education students in China. Only organization doing this in China.

Description
An inspirational conversation directed to encourage people to experience life in a way that makes it more alive. Examples of how to achieve this will be articulated through my bachelors degree in speech communications, my experience with students with intellectual disabilities regarding how they view their community and stories of transformations of orphans abilities.
