Teacher, Writer, and Consultant in Columbus, Ohio
I’m an early-rising, over-active, highly-optimistic, very-smiley, happily-married, former-high-school-now-middle-school-Spanish teacher who loves to read, eat great food, and travel!
During the 2016-17 school year, I am on a traveling sabbatical, searching for schools and teachers around the world who want to create meaningful global connections and exploring best practices in a variety of education systems internationally.
Some of my interests include: thoughtful integration of technology and 21st century skills into the classroom, foreign & second language acquisition, educational psychology, intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation, software design and programming, global competency in the classroom, brain-based learning, kinesthetic movement in the classroom, and exploring creative ways of measuring student and teacher performance.
I love to learn, explore, and question. Please get in touch!
