Don Lambert


Hello and welcome! My name is Don Lambert and I am the K-8 technology teacher for the 2023-24 school year. This is my 7th full year at Pine-Strawberry School, and I'm looking forward to the continued growth of all of our students!

 I have a bachelor's degree in general K-8 education (2017), and I also hold a bachelor's degree in electronics engineering. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked for 20+ years at Motorola semiconductor operations and its spin-offs working in sustaining and new product development engineering, test engineering, and information architecture management. I had great experiences working with people all around the world both in person and virtually.

Having grown up in a small rural area in Minnesota, now I'm back to enjoying small-town living and hopefully making a difference by helping the next generation navigate the ever-changing world of technology :)

·         block coding (K-4)

·         text coding (3-8) 

·         understanding the basic operation of personal computing devices (K-8)

·         typing (1-8)

·         create slideshows (1-8)

·         create process flow diagrams (2-5)

·         understand spreadsheet terminology and structure including cell manipulation (3-8)

·         use a spreadsheet for graphing (5-8)

·         creation and use of audio and video data (2-8)
