Thomas Hagle: District Technician Level 1

Thomas Hagle: District Technician Level 2, thagle@rvusd.org

I am Thomas Hagle, though many call me Tommy. I grew up out by Sebastopol and migrated to Santa Rosa in my teen years. I began working in RVUSD in 2014 as a noon duty at Madrone and immediately fell in love with the job. I enjoy working with students and seeing them progress through their education. I have also always had a knack for technology. When I became the site computer tech at Madrone I was able to not only see and support more students but I was able to begin really supporting the teachers with classroom technology. Ensuring that teaching staff has what they need to conduct their lessons and helping them to be successful makes me happy. I also enjoy my volunteer work serving as the CSEA President. I hope to enjoy many years here at RVUSD.

Justin Breninger: District Technician Level 1, jbreninger@rvusd.org

My name is Justin Breninger and I am happy to have joined the RVUSD team in 2021!

I have always enjoyed working with and building computers for myself and friends, and my previous job focused heavily on providing great customer service. When I got the job here at RVUSD, I was extremely excited as I felt like my prior experiences helped shape me up for this job very well.

My mom is a teacher, so ever since I was little I had always been interested in working in a school district, and so I am extremely excited to be able to support teachers, students, and the district staff with all of the different technology that we use. I already feel right at home.
