Keith Lindsay received his BA in English from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 1997 and upon graduation began teaching English in public secondary schools in North Carolina. In 2013 he completed recertification by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and as a result of the lessons learned from that research, he transformed his traditional English IV classroom into an all-digital format. He has extensive experience designing and deploying virtual courses and coaching others as they integrate digital content into secondary classrooms. In 2016, he was hired as a founding member of Crossroads FLEX High School in Cary, North Carolina. Crossroads FLEX is the first virtual/face-to-face blended high school in the state. He is currently enrolled in a graduate program in instructional design at North Carolina State University.
