As a former teacher, now district administrator, innovative teaching and learning has always been the driving force behind my passion for this work. My goal is that everything we do starts with our learners and grows from there. My lifelong love for technology has found a great partner in the ideas and concepts behind both Universal Design for Learning and Personalized Learning, resulting in my current position as Personalized Learning and Instructional Technology Specialist for the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District. I love working with teams of teachers to coach them in the implementation of innovative practices that encourage:
Student ownership and agency
21st century skills
I am always looking for teachers and leaders who understand and value this type of learning. Connect with me over LinkedIn to collaborate and share in this work.
Beyond work I like to spend my nights arguing with friends and family about why the New York Rangers probably won’t lose another hockey game for the rest of my lifetime, or why Arsenal Football Club can’t seem to win trophies even though they clearly have the best team on the planet. I’m always scouring the internet for news about technology and I love to learn from great organizations about how they build their culture.
