Valley Springs Geek Squad
The Valley Springs Technology Department currently consists of two individuals:
- Our goal is to make sure Faculty/Staff and Students have the best possible experience involving technology. We do all we can to make sure everything runs smoothly throughout the year and continuously strive to improve what we currently have.
VSGS - "You Wreck it, We Tech it”
Technology Coordinator - Mike Whitescarver
"I grew up in Valley Springs, graduated from the school, went on to graduate from College of the Ozarks with a BS in Computer Science, and then moved to Joplin, MO. There I resided for 6 years, writing computer software for a manufacturing company called Leggett & Platt. (I also got married in that time span...love you Aimee!) In the summer of 2007, I took a job offer to come back to Valley Springs and become the Technology Coordinator at the school. Since that moment, my life has been golden...well, for the most part.
I love my God, wife, son & daughter, Cardinals, Razorbacks, and to joke around. Oh...I kinda like technology stuff too."

Technology Specialist - Daniel Traylor
"I grew up on a small farm outside of Fort Smith. I lived with my parents in Mansfield until I moved to Russellville to attend Arkansas Tech. I attended ATU for four years and received a degree in Agriculture Business. After graduation, I returned home to work with the Cooperative Extention Service and help with 4-H clubs. During this time I also started substituting in the surrounding schools. While subbing, I discovered a love for teaching, so I started working on getting my teaching degree in 2011.
That fall, I met Jessica Rogers and started spending time in Northwest Arkansas. Jessica informed me about a job opening at Valley Springs. I went to the interview and was hired as the Technology Specialist/Business Education Teacher in May 2012. A few months later, I moved to the Harrison area. Jessica and I were married in Eureka Springs, AR on May 18th, 2013. We currently live in Harrison. Jessica is currently teaching her second year of 5th grade at Berryville Intermediate. I am in my third year at VS and wouldn't want to be anywhere else!"
