Meet the Tech Support Team

Barrington 220 is pleased to welcome a few new faces to our Technology Support Team—and re-introduce some familiar faces. Although the team is based at Barrington High School, you will likely see our District Technology Support Associates, Technicians, and Specialists in all our buildings across the district. Meet the Barrington 220 tech support team...

Kim Martinez
District Technology Support Specialist

I started working in District 220 in 1995 as the library clerk at Sunny Hill. I have been a Computer Technician for the District since April 1999. Over the past 20 years we have gone from a Mac district to a PC district back to a Mac district. Providing quality customer service has always been one of the most important aspects of my job. Knowing that our staff and students trust me and my ability to service their needs has been very fulfilling.

My life outside of D220? It's all about family for me!


Jason Bryant
District Technology Support Specialist

If you ever emailed or put in a tech ticket request, then you’ve probably communicated with me, Jason Bryant. In 2007, I started my journey as a computer tech in Barrington. With over 20 years of computer technical background, I'm well versed in both Mac and Windows computers. I love all aspects of tech and how it works (and getting new toys to test).

When not at work, I spend most of my time with my loving wife and 2 kids.



Charlie Parkinson
District Technology Support Technician

I find my job to be extremely rewarding. I enjoy working in the school environment and assisting teachers and students with their technology needs. This is my first year in Barrington, and I look forward to creating great relationships with the students and staff here in Barrington 220.

I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University, and I married my best friend from high school in 2013. I am a sports enthusiast and am involved in softball leagues. I also enjoy fishing and billiards.



Josh Beatty
District Technology Support Technician

I moved to the Chicago area from the Oregon Coast in 1999. I completed a Bachelor of Musical Arts Degree from Pacific Lutheran University and earned a Systems Administration and Security Certificate from College of Lake County. My school tech support career began as a summer worker for Barrington 220 and later I worked as a substitute tech in the district. For the last two years, I was a Technology Support Technician for West Chicago Community High School and rejoined the Barrington 220 tech team this August.

I am also a private saxophone instructor for Barrington 220. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, playing saxophone in several bands, taking photographs with my collection of classic film cameras, or pursuing the perfect cup of coffee.


Derrick Kovell
District Technology Support Technician

I have been doing technology support in an academic environment for almost twelve years. Previous to Rock Valley I worked in McHenry School District 15. I graduated from Western Illinois University and earned my Master's degree from DePaul University.

I took the position here in Barrington due to the appeal of Technology and Innovation, specifically the innovation. I am looking forward to collaborating with my colleagues, as well as other district personnel, in continuing to support and integrate district technology.

I live in Crystal Lake with my wife, Erin, and enjoy watching basketball and baseball, especially the Bulls and Cubs.
