Dave Sikkema

Dave Sikkema is a 4th grade teacher at Regents Christian-Classical School in Austin, Texas, where he lives with his better half, Maria. He earned a BA in History from Queens University (2006), an MA in history from Baylor University (2009), and an MA in digital history–something his family still believes is made up–from the University of Western Ontario (2012). The focus of his graduate studies centered on education and on the role of digital technologies in recording historical narratives. Dave frequently writes about the cultural impact of digital technology on his blog and for other publications, and is currently teaching an after-school program for 5th and 6th grade students on digital citizenship.
