Announcing #TEKSGiving 2024 - La Escuelita Bilingual Preschool
Led by @randrconnectivity

La Escuelita seeks to close the achievement gap for Spanish-speaking children through an engaging, evidence-based education model, and as preschool is prime time for verbal synapses in the brain to form, reaching these children early is key to their future success. The entire mantra of La Escuelita is "Aprender, Jugar, y Crecer" or "Learn, Play, and Grow."

La Escuelita is new to most technology and is hoping to benefit from security software and hardware, physical IT equipment like computers or tablets, and interconnected devices to share data and resources between staff. They would love to introduce their students to technology as well!

Announcing our new TAC, Nathan McCord of Workplace Technologies (@wp_techs)

"TAC" is our acronym standing for "TEK ADVISORY COMMITTEE."

The job of a TAC is vital to the success and growth of our nonprofit. These individuals have specific skills, talents, and experience that are shared with and utilized by leadership to ensure a well-rounded, multi-perspective approach that keeps leadership focused on the true mission of TKW- creating a stellar community of technology professionals that make one another and their local communities better.

After spending more than 20 years in various roles with some of Indianapolis` top integrators, Nathan decided to branch out on his own by forming Workplace Technologies over two years ago.

Workplace Technologies "installs and services the IT stuff most IT people do not want to deal with." Whether structured cabling and network design or security alarms and access control, Nathan does it all thanks to his many years of experience and expertise in the field.

He joined up with TEKnowledge Worldwide as a business owner and has recognized the growth- both personal and professional- that has come from engaging with our community. As such, he felt called to give back as a TAC, sharing his experience with fellow IT professionals and contributing to our nonprofit mission through such initiatives as TEKSGiving.

Announcing our new TAC, Sean Puglisi (@seanpugs19) of Libertas Consulting, LLC (@libertasray)
"TAC" is our acronym standing for "TEK ADVISORY COMMITTEE."

The job of a TAC is vital to the success and growth of our nonprofit. These individuals have specific skills, talents, and experience that are shared with and utilized by leadership to ensure a well-rounded, multi-perspective approach that keeps leadership focused on the true mission of TKW- creating a stellar community of technology professionals that make one another and their local communities better.

While Sean got his beginnings in construction, he was able to parlay his skills and expertise into IT where he now works as a support specialist for Libertas Consulting, LLC. When he`s not troubleshooting hardware or providing technical support to their clients, Sean can be found spending time with his wonderful wife, Ashley, or playing volleyball.

Fun fact about Sean: he is an Eagle Scout! As such, he has demonstrated commitment, hard work, persistence, initiative, and a sincere willingness to help others- something he`s well known for within our community.

As a TAC, he`s hoping to bring those same traits to the table to elevate the mission and work of TKW as best he can. He`s inspired by our mission and is excited by the opportunity to volunteer at charitable events to bridge the digital divide, empowering underserved communities through technology in the process!

Just 1 week ago - the @teknowledgeww community travelled to Nashville, TN for their 2nd Annual Fundraising event. This event is like no other - it`s a combination of hands on labs, speaking engagements, networking and Vendor exhibition who`s focus is to raise funds for our annual #TEKSGiving project where we get together and give back to a community in need.

In 2 short years - our community has given back over $300k in product and services to organizations that also do amazing things in their respective communities.

There`s is NO better organization, community, or group of people ever to come together in the aid of others.

We`ll see you all again soon!
