I am very fortunate to do what I love. I have a passion for teaching and learning. My curiosity and excitement for learning new things translates directly to my work.
Integrating technology into the curriculum and classroom has been an incredible learning and teaching experience for me. Shifting students from consumers of information to producers of dynamic multimedia pieces allows for greater depth of learning and understanding. Technology has also provided me the tools to individualize and differentiate the learning experience I provide in powerful and exciting ways. I believe in preparing students with the skills and ability to think critically, collaborate and communicate effectively, and creatively express themselves.
I believe sharing and collaborating with others is an important part of continued learning and professional development. I am involved in several different professional learning communities and enjoy leading professional learning for educators.
