My name is John Wollbrinck and I am the Technology Manager for Aurora Central High School. It is my priviledge to be responsible for the installation, maintenance, and repair of 98% of the technology in this building.
I was born and raised in Colorado. After high school I attended Front Range Community College, Metropolitan State College and graduated from Regis University with my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Adminsitration with an emphasis on Management. I have 12 years of Telecommunications experience and 27 years of Information Technology experience as a programmer, computer operator, computer communications trouble analysis center, network engineer, Unix administrator, helpdesk supervisor, IT Manager, and (currently) Technology Manager. My list of employers includes Mountain Bell, US West, Qwest, @LightSpeed, Fortrust, Securitas, Starbucks, and Aurora Public Schools (Rangeview and Aurora Central).
Amongst my educational endeavors I met and married Tammy Wollbrinck (School Nurse extrodinare) and together we brought two amazing children into this world, Matthew and Katrina. We currently are owned by a dog (Patch) and a cat (Gabbie).
The technology of this building includes, but is not necessarily limited to, computers, printers, telephones, computer software, projectors, visualizers/document cameras, iPod, iPads, iPhones, Promethean Boards, cameras, and a host of other technology pieces purchased with school/district funds, that assist us in delivering educational content to our students. I work hand-in-hand with various staff members at Central High School and the Aurora Public Schools Information Technology Department in an attempt to deliver the highest quality service possible.
