Brian Azevedo is the NHMS/NHHS go-to guy when it comes to all things IT, or internet technology.
He graduated from Mountain Grove High School in 2002. From 2002 to 2007, he went to Missouri State University for Electronic Arts.
When asked why Mr. Azevedo wanted to work in New Haven, he responded with, “I moved to Hermann about 5 years ago, and I had heard good things about the school in New Haven.”
Mr. Azevedo was asked what inspired him to become a school staff member, and he said, “Both of my parents were teachers, so working in a school was something that I was interested in from a young age.”
He was questioned about what exactly he does for NHMS/NHHS, and he said, “I make sure that all of the various technology that we use here at the school are working correctly, and I help to plan what technology or services we might use in the future.”
Mr. Azevedo said he really enjoys being able to help someone when they are having an issue, or trying to figure out how to do something involving technology.
Outside of work, he is really passionate about playing music. He learned to play guitar and piano when he was younger, and it is something that he still really enjoys. He also loves anything to do with 3D designs.
When asked about his family, he said, “My wife and I have been married for 7 years and we met while we were both going to college in Springfield through mutual friends. I have a daughter named Lilly who is 4 and a son named Eli who is 1.”
He was questioned if he had a pet peeve, and he said, “I don't like when someone isn't willing to try to learn something new, or when they decide that they can't do something before attempting it.”
One quote he likes is by Henry Ford: “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”
Thank you, Mr. Azevedo, for representing the Tradition of Excellence in our school!
