TEACHING EXPERIENCE

TeamMastermind evolved to bring together creativity, teamwork, and problem solving. Specifically, I sought to provide techniques and strategies that children could use to master these vital skills. I also wanted to emphasize the process of learning — not just the result… in other words, how to think, not what to think. During the past 16 years, TeamMastermind has impacted thousands of children by providing opportunities for hands-on exploration. That active engagement and pure delight is why I created TeamMastermind… and it’s why I continue to develop curricula that can change lives — one enthusiastic child at a time.

MY TEACHING STYLE

TeamMastermind is all about the creative process as it intersects with thoughtful problem-solving. As such, it is a very hands-on, interactive curricula designed to promote intellectual risk-taking and creative learning and growth.
