I believe that learning should be engaging - everyone has an innate desire to learn, even if school sometimes suppresses it. If we can make learning transparent and engaging, all learners can be successful!

While I continue to work with teachers and students in the upper grades, which I love, I also do a lot of work with my 5-year-old son at home to support his areas of interest and fan his natural spark of curiosity. So I'll share things I create from both areas!
