I believe that students learn best when: -they have a choice in how they learn and present their learning. -given multiple experiences to learn new information. -information is relevant and presented in a way they understand. -they are confident with the vocabulary needed to progress. -can relate the material to other areas of life (ie: arts, music).

A lifelong learner in pursuit of a growth mindset. I have encountered numerous teachers throughout my educational journey who are amazing at what they do; day in and day out. Mentoring educators is my way of giving back. Having a platform to share ideas and products with other amazing educators is an amazing opportunity to reach students all around the world!
