I was able to grow and spread my passion for education in 2016 when I joined a group of educators from around the globe as a TED ED Innovative Educator. In this program, I was able to collaborate with educators and the TED community to implement an innovation project on Design Thinking and roll out TED Ed Clubs in my district.
Another side project of mine is a book I'm working on with a group of authors called the NOW Classroom Project. This book will be full of lessons to integrate meaningful technology into middle school classrooms. I am excited about its release in Fall 2017 as part of a 5 book series.
I am passionate about creating personalized learning opportunities for students through the use of technology and structures like design thinking, PBL, and STEM integration. I want all students to have the opportunity to become digital leaders in our ever-changing world.
On a personal note, I love to spend time with my husband and two children enjoying life in the suburbs of Chicago.
