Classified Employee Feature - Jason Walker, technology at CMS
Jason Walker has only been on the Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 team for a short time, but in that timeframe, he has really set himself apart as someone who is positive, eager to learn, and very customer service oriented.
Jason is another FFC8 staff person who comes to our team after being in the military himself. He was hired in April 2018 to be the computer technician in support of Carson Middle School, located on Fort Carson. He also supports the elementary schools on Fort Carson in technology. During the school year, Jason works out of his office at CMS, called the ER. He works with staff, parents and students on various technology issues throughout the day. When not helping staff or students directly, he can be found fixing or replacing parts on computers. Then during the summer, he works from many different locations throughout the district fixing and preparing district technology for the next school year.
“The best part of my job is that I get to work with some of the finest, the most dedicated educators and technicians in the field,” Jason says. “I also love working with the students and helping them. I guess you could say I love all aspects of my job.”
According to Mr. Tony Greco, the principal at Carson Middle School, Jason goes above and beyond to help families, teachers and the entire Eagle community. “I have personally observed him meeting with parents in the main lobby to walk them through technical issues, add a needed resource to a computer, all the while demonstrating patience with anyone who may not be technologically savvy.” Tony goes on to say that the staff really appreciate Jason, as well. “I have received multiple email from teachers recognizing his work ethic as he travels from classroom to classroom in the hybrid/cohort model to help with Schoology, projector alignment and general technology questions.”
We all appreciate having Jason on the team and know he adds a lot of value to the Eagle, and FFC8, community! Tony said it best: “Jason is the consummate professional in his approach to work and has become the living model of the CMS theme this year ‘Whatever It Takes.’”
