Dunkel is excited about his new role in technology for the schools because it’s clear why the job is important. He explains, “Students and teachers need these systems in place for lessons, research, and assessments.  This field allows me to work with a medium I enjoy – technology –in a forum I find rewarding – the schools.”

Dunkel plans to provide a practical approach to improving the school division’s network and information systems. He believes his ideas for the future will make everyone’s job a bit easier. He states, “It’s important to stay proactive in the technology field. Systems need to be updated and replaced regularly.” Because new technology is developed every day, Dunkel plans to keep current on innovative tools for our education system and implement new ideas into our current system.

His brother holds a managerial job in Alabama, and his sister is a marketing student at Michigan State University.

Dunkel expresses his gratitude for the opportunity to be in his new position where he will surely bring positive growth and change to Middlesex County Public Schools. His new position begins on July 1, 2013.
