A longtime high school music educator, Bill Reynolds earned his BS in Music Education in 1981 from Roberts Wesleyan College and his MS in Music Education from SUNY Potsdam's Crane School of Music in 1986.
Bill began his career as a junior high/high school music teacher at Chenango Forks Central School. He then taught vocal music for grades 7 through 12 at Frankfort-Schuyler Central School District for two years. In 1985 he joined the faculty at Dolgeville Central School where he taught vocal music and was the technical director for the district's annual musical theater productions.
His interest in emerging technologies developed when he began using MIDI applications in his music instruction and grew into his passion for instructional technology. During this time, he was a very active member of the New York State Music Educator's Associations (NYSSMA) technology committee. In 1996, Bill was appointed as the Dolgeville Central School District's technology coordinator while continuing to teach full time. In 2004, he became the district's full time technology coordinator/integration specialist. Soon after, he became an employee of the Herkimer-Hamilton-Fulton-Otsego BOCES, working as technology coordinator in the Dolgeville, Mount Markham, and Owen D. Young school districts. Bill "officially" retired in 2014, but continues to serve on the NYSCATE Board as past president.
