As a teacher of 10+ years, I have spent time as a consultant for educators, a technology mentor, a conference speaker, and mainly a classroom teacher. I love education, and am passionate about all aspects of learning, both in youth and adults. I spent 7 years teaching English from Grades 9-12 and currently teach Grade 4 as a generalist. I continue to support teachers as a Co-Moderator for #ntchat on Twitter and have a strong social media presence. I have also given a TEDx talk on the future of technology in education, it was definitely a career highlight! :)
While I am well versed in many teaching styles, I believe that a strong blended approach that enables students to utilize their new learning with application through a project-based learning approach is essential, so many of my resources will focus on blending direct-instruction, online tools and assessment with large authentic projects.
I was a semi-finalist for the Alberta Excellence in Teaching Awards in 2014. Featured Speaker at iPadpalooza conference in Austin Texas in 2013.

Please let me know how I can serve you. My best projects are ones that are requested by teachers. I can guess at what your classroom needs are, but if you tell me we will serve many more teachers together! :)
