Department Head – Teacher Education,
Assistant Professor of Education
The majority of today’s elementary school students grew up with computers and high-speed Internet in their homes. Hours that children used to spend riding bicycles and playing in mud are now consumed by video games and interactive computer programs.
Technology is what got Dr. Gregg Stall’s foot in the door at Nicholls. He began in 2001 as the coordinator of the Preparing Teachers to Use Technology Program. He now serves as an assistant professor and project coordinator of a $1.4 million grant designed to help “re-tool” the teacher preparation program to include technology-integrated instruction.
Prior to joining the Nicholls faculty, Stall taught in Livingston, Lafourche, St. John and Jefferson Parish schools. He also served as the central office administrator for Lafourche Parish Schools. What Stall enjoys about working at Nicholls is being able to provide instruction and guidance to students based on their individual needs and aspirations.
“Our interactions with students during their formal education often lead to long term professional relationships and collaborative ventures between Nicholls and local school districts,” Stall says. “I believe that these authentic K-12 experiences are vital to our mission of preparing future teachers and administrators.”
In his spare time, Stall enjoys attending athletic events, especially high school sports and college football.
