Jason Lineberger, English teacher to the stars, is a 26 year veteran of public education. This National Board Certified Teacher has taught all levels of English from 8-12 and currently serves Cleveland County Schools as the system’s Digital Learning Coordinator. Lineberger graduated from the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics and went on to study English Education at The University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill on a full academic scholarship. He has been an adjunct professor of Literature, a trainer for the North Carolina Teacher Academy, and a Lead Facilitator at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching. He's a regular conference presenter, and he gave a closing keynote address at the 2019 NCTIES conference. 

Fun Fact: When he's not presenting on stage, Jason likes to rock the stage as a member of America's Premier Ukulele Party Band, The Dancing Fleas.

Favorite PBS Character/Show: Zoom! because he “works with kids who are on FLL and FTC robotics teams, and uses Zoom to inspire design challenges.”
