Maker | Innovator | Gamer | Techie
Hi, My Name is Andres Joubert
I am an Educator and the Director of Innovation and Technology for Park Maitland School in Orlando, FL. I currently teach design thinking and Spanish, but maintain a passion for all things mathematical and logistical! I like to make, create, and tinker using many different mediums. I always seek ways to innovate and re-imagine everything around me. I grew up playing sports and video games all the time! I also developed an interest for all things techie. What can I say? I'm a nerd!
Fun Facts About Me
I am bilingual: English and Spanish.
I was born in Caracas, Venezuela, but have lived in Miami, FL since the age of 1.
My family tree stems from a Spanish, Italian, and Dutch line.
My biggest regret is not forcing my father to teach me Dutch.
Aside from teaching, I am also an avid basketball fan and autocrosser.
My knowledge about the financial/executive workings of NBA teams would scare you.
I am in the process of tearing down and rebuilding my autocross car (Honda del sol).
I like to spend my free time playing video games, working on cars, and DIY's around the house.
In high school, I completed a 4 year Computer Science program.
Before switching to an education track, my undergraduate track was originally engineering.
I am a proud father of two; an 8 year old boy and a 4 year old girl.
I have recently discovered an obsession for espresso coffee.
What am I up to?

Staying stagnant and settling for the status quo goes against my grain. I am continuously searching for ways to grow as a person and a professional. My most recent endeavor includes inspiring others to also push the status quo, think outside the box, and ReImagineEd. Here are the three mediums I use to achieve this goal:
I am the author and creator of ReImagineEd. Visit back often for the latest ideas and thoughts.
I am also currently co-authoring a book, "Makerfication!", with Rick Funes. Keep an eye out for updates and sneak peaks of our book!
