Director of Information Technology, Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School, BSc (Hons)

I am the Director of Information Technology at Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School, a PreK-12 independent day school in Rockville, MD. I oversee the support of over 900 client devices (desktop, tablets, and laptops) and 26 servers, based primarily on Windows 8.1 with Server 2008 R2 and 2012 R2, along with Google Chromebooks. The network serves around 940 students in grades K-12 and around 250 employees, who work primarily in either G Suite or Office 365. Significant 1st and 2nd line support is provided by Dataprise, Inc. under a managed service contract, and many of the school's larger IT projects are also outsourced to Dataprise technical services teams.
