About the Coach

Hey, and welcome to The Ed Tech Locker Room! I am the resident coach of this facility! My name is Steven Cortez and I am an Edgenuity Lab Director for Katy ISD.


I am the luckiest husband and dad in the world! My beautiful wife of almost 6 years is Samantha and she is my best friend. She is a librarian and an awesome mentor in my pursuit of my masters degree. I have two young boys, Troy and Owen. Troy, 5, is just like his mom and a future leader in the making! Owen, almost 2, is Mr. Independent and loves to help his mom cook and eat! I am absolutely blessed to have them in my life!

When I’m not coaching up students in the classroom, helping other teachers with tech questions or working on graduate school assignments, I enjoy getting outside with my wife and kids to explore what nature has to offer! We love camping and are making it a mission to visit one Texas State Park per month in 2018! We have two down, only 10 more to go!

Some of my hobbies include playing basketball, going on hikes, fishing and playing fantasy sports!
