SqoolTechs, LLC was founded by a group of educators consisting of Diana Dell, Kevin McCarthy, and Vince Szewczyk. SqoolTechs, LLC is an educational technology consulting company whose mission is “Supporting Quality Online Opportunities for Learning.” In pursuit of this mission, SqoolTechs, LLC offers a wide variety of services to K-12 districts, schools, teachers, and educational organizations.
Diana and Vince were formerly employed at a Missouri school district where Vince served as the District Technology Director for 8 years and Diana served as the District Instructional Technology Specialist for 3 years. Kevin, a technology consultant, worked with Vince for 3 years, one or two days a week assisting with whatever the needs of the moment happened to be.
During the 3 years Vince and Diana worked together, they discovered that their individual strengths and talents supported each others, and that their visions for the use of technology as an instructional tool were very much the same. Together they guided the revision of the district's technology plan, developed and delivered professional development opportunities, and wrote Title II-D grants which received approval by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The district was immersed in the eMINTS program at the elementary level where 12 classrooms were implementing the eMINTS model of instruction. The Title II-D grant expanded the eMINTS program into the district's middle school. Together Vince and Diana spent countless hours both during the school day and after hours planning and working on these and other projects, yet through it all, they were able to laugh and have fun.
In the spring of 2007, Diana decided it was time to retire from public education and Vince was ready for a change. Together they started brainstorming how they could continue to work together to benefit the education of students and improve the quality of online instruction at the K-12 level. SqoolTechs, LLC was formed and the idea for SqoolTools soon followed. Vince and Diana quickly understood that Kevin's expertise in web technology was needed to make SqoolTools a reality and they persuaded Kevin to join the SqoolTechs Team.
