Meet your Technology Team!

Mike Nicholas

A multi-dimensional IT philosopher by day, meme connoisseur by night. As the district's technology director, I bring order to the chaos of the digital world. I may not always know the answer, but I'll always know where to find it (usually on Reddit). My "why" in education was honed to a fine point when my now 2 1/2 year old daughter was born and I was strapped into a rollercoaster that all parents must ride. I'm a Beaumont, Texas native and Dallas Cowboy fan who loves trying new restaurants, taking road trips, and convincing my coworkers that the '90s were the best decade for technology. #neverforgetfloppydisks

Myron Moham

My Name is Myron Moham. I am the help desk manager at Royal-ISD. I have been doing everything related to helpdesk related for 38 years . My day starts at 6:30 when I arrive at the high school, I work alongside  with the district's very own geek squad but sometimes they have a hard time keeping up with me , it's probably because I walk the equivalent of six to seven miles every day throughout the day.

Mr. Myron is a really hard working guy he’s always on every campus of ROYAL ISD helping every teacher that needs help, he’s the best of the best, No one can compete with his skills, he’s always averaging of 6 miles walking per day around RISD, he's the best that RISD has ever had.

Joni Hooper

As a natural born list maker, planner, task ticker and creature of habit I have found my home away from home. You can find me in the back taking notes for our technology wizards and making sure the lists are made and the tasks are ticked. I will be the voice you hear with the warm smile to communicate your needs to our department. I have never shied away from a challenge and look forward to the growth ofthis community. When I am not at work, I am probably found in bed, cruising in our T-Bucket or just being the best pawrent to my furbaby I can be.

Duc Tran

Duc is the longest surviving member of our plucky team. No doubt because he's one of the funniest people around, causing even the grumpiest teachers to crack a smile in the face of technological adversity. He works quickly, so that by the time you look up, your laptop is doing what it's supposed to once again and Duc is three doors down shedding some of his positive outlook on others around him.

Welcome to the Technology Department of Royal ISD!

Our mission is to empower students, teachers, and staff with cutting-edge technology solutions that enhance the learning experience and streamline administrative processes. We believe that although technology plays a pivotal role in preparing our students for the challenges of the 21st century, it cannot be relied upon as crutch or the only tool in an educator's toolbox.

Our Services

At the heart of our department's efforts are the services we offer to support the entire school district community:

  1. Educational Technology Integration: We work closely with teachers to integrate technology into the classroom, fostering innovative and engaging learning experiences. From interactive whiteboards to educational software, we provide the tools needed to inspire a love for learning.

  2. Network Infrastructure: Our team manages a robust network infrastructure to ensure reliable internet connectivity across all schools. This supports online learning, administrative tasks, and communication among students, parents, and educators.

  3. Device Management: We maintain and distribute a variety of computing devices, including laptops and tablets, to both students and staff. These devices are equipped with the latest software and security measures to enhance the teaching and learning experience.

  4. Data Security and Privacy: Protecting sensitive data is paramount. We implement rigorous security protocols to safeguard student and staff information, ensuring compliance with privacy regulations.

  5. Technical Support: Our dedicated helpdesk is here to assist with any technology-related issues. Whether it's troubleshooting a software problem or setting up a new device, we're just a call or email away.

  6. Professional Development: We offer training and resources to help educators harness the full potential of technology in the classroom. Continuous learning is essential, and we provide opportunities for teachers to stay current with technology trends.

Our Commitment to Innovation

The world of technology is ever-evolving, and we are committed to staying at the forefront of innovation. We regularly evaluate and adopt new technologies that have the potential to improve the educational experience. We also collaborate with educators and administrators to identify emerging needs and develop customized solutions.

Parent and Student Resources

We understand that parents and students may have questions about technology in the district. To help, we provide resources and guides on topics such as:

  • Accessing online learning platforms

  • Troubleshooting common issues

  • Understanding digital citizenship and online safety

We believe that a collaborative approach between parents, students, and the district is key to ensuring the successful integration of technology into education.
