He also developed the technology integration plan for technical assistance through IDRA’s Focusing on Language and Academic Instructional Renewal (FLAIR) model. FLAIR capitalizes on the campus leaders, mobilizing the principal, teachers, librarians and support staff as a force to tailor-make a reading program that is research based and that results in better achievement for all students. Bojorquez led implementation at a pilot campus where teachers are now using technology with their students in the classroom and seeing dramatic results.
Mr. Bojorquez has worked in education for more than 17 years in roles ranging from education specialist for a regional education service center to writing curriculum and training to teaching in a bilingual elementary school classroom.
