About Me

For the past 17 years, I engaged my middle school humanities students via an instructional approach that fostered creativity through design-based learning. The curriculum was project based and aimed at developing students’ skills in critical viewing, civil discussion, and problem solving. With over 20 years in education, I have spent time teaching and developing classes at the middle school, high school, and college level. In 2014 I began teaching 9-10 English for gifted learners. I’m interested in learning how the design thinking heuristic can truly engage students no matter what curriculum they are studying.
