I am an Educator, Instructional Technology Specialist, and Consultant of 30+ years who loves to celebrate young people and the joy they can bring into our lives! This passion for teaching surfaced in my fifth grade year under the gentle care and compassion of a devoted teacher. Thank you, Mrs. Gomedella, for making a difference in my life.
I believe that every child has a unique set of strengths, gifts, and interests, and it is up to us in the adult world to 1) Work with children to help them uncover and build upon their strengths 2) Diagnose where the specific learning breakdowns occur and why 3) Build our expertise about the science of learning 4) Leverage this expertise to accelerate learning 5) Create a culture of compassion where every human being is treated with dignity, respect, and high expectations
