about_one.jpg

Jeffrey Stillwell…Founder of Accident Avoidance Workshops.  Also, known as Homer… (make sure that you catch where he got that nickname…)

He is a professional driving instructor who specializes in teaching teens but also adults how to deal with the situations which are potential accident causing! He is credentialed and recognized by many organizations like… he is a AAA Approved Driving School and certified by the National Defensive Driving Institute as well as supported by Bristol and Atlanta Motor Speedways, The Weather Channel, and Volkswagen of Chattanooga.

He is an amazing instructor who connects with the kids and families.

If you were to ask his students to describe him they would use words like Fun-Funny-Inspiring-Caring and just a wonderful Nut!

He has a background in suspension construction and racing and has been the track announcer at Bristol Motor Speedway! (Check out his voice…definitely grabs your attention!)

He also is a semi-professional slot car racer…you’ll hear us talk about that toward the end of the show.

Jeffrey takes great pride in his instructional practices and that he is potentially saving lives.

You will learn so much from listening and I encourage you to seek to bring him to your community! Make sure that you see how he will team with your school as a fund raiser.

On today's show, David and I talk about VLC or VideoLan.

VLC is a free-open source cross platform multimedia player that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.

As an Open Source player it is available to users with no financial obligation... although, the producers would like you to donate to them so that they can continue to develop VLC and work on new projects.

VLC (VideoLan) has many features. Check out this list below. (By the way, Teaching Learning Leading K12 does not have a financial obligation to or an affiliation with VideoLan.) It is an amazing opensource tool that will liberate you from other players that have built in issues.
