Jacinto Noriega

“I love learning by watching, wondering, and then failing – to me ‘fail’ = ‘First Attempt In Learning’ – until I figure it out. Getting hands-on with real-life problems is what it’s all about for me!”


Prior to joining Digital Promise, Jacinto was a technology manager for a community-based organization in San Francisco. There, he integrated community technology services with schools, businesses, and other agencies to bridge the digital divide in the Mission District neighborhood. He’s also been an elementary school teacher, Avid site coordinator, and technology integration specialist in public schools. Jacinto received his B.A. in liberal studies and his M.A. in education with a focus on equity and social justice. You can reach Jacinto at jacinto@digitalpromise.org.
