I'm a middle school language arts and journalism teacher, Google for Education Certified Trainer, EdTech enthusiast, and media literacy advocate.

I believe

in lifelong learning; in maximizing the potential of digital tools in and out of the classroom; in the use of language as a vehicle for enacting personal, social and global change; in the value of kindness, empathy & pizza parties; that there’s no such thing as too many colored pens or sticky notes.
