Information technology (IT) professionals are key to the success of businesses and organizations around the world, and the Marshalltown CSD celebrated our fantastic Technology Department team on Tuesday – National IT Professionals Day 2021. 

Director of Technology Amy Harmsen said the Tech team includes several specialists in the areas of technology support, network security, student and staff device coordination, and more.

“My favorite part of working here is working with these people. Our team is really awesome and you can see they care about people,” Harmsen said.

District Server Specialist Sebastian Ramirez said the most rewarding part of the work is finding ways to improve the lives of students and teachers through new technologies. Several technology support specialists said they enjoy the problem-solving inherent to their work, whether helping a teacher get the most out of an online lesson or helping students learn how to safely and effectively use their Chromebook.

Thank you to our great team of IT professionals!
