Who is Mr. House
Welcome to Charles T. Koontz Intermediate
Project Lead The Way 
Thomas House

I graduated from Appalachian State University in 1991.  After working for 10 years in Geographic Information Systems and Database Management, I decided to pursue a career as a teacher. A few years ago I completed a graduate degree in Instructional Technology at Appalachian.  My wife, Michelle, is a media center coordinator at Asheville High School.
This is my fourth year at Koontz, but my 15th year teaching in Buncombe County Schools. This is a great community, and we have energetic students who teach me new things every day.
I feel very lucky to be teaching Technology Skills, and to have a chance to share some of the technical knowledge I was lucky enough to learn in my early career.
As a parent of young teenagers myself, I know how complex and challenging digital technology can be in our families.  
Outside of school I love to spend time with my two children,
 Solomon and Moriah.  We love to hike, ride our bikes and explore the mountains. We share our home with a cat, Yoda, and an African Fat Tailed gecko named Cleo.
