I love creating an environment that invites students to develop habits to thrive in multimedia ecosystems. For me, developing ways to engage students with personalized, media rich lessons that embed digital citizenship is key. Engaged students are empowered and independent.
I am a Responsive Classroom Teacher that teaches at an International Baccalaureate magnet school.
I am also a proud Ambassador for 3DBear and Classcraft; they have engaged my students in ways that I could not predict.
Currently, I am a PreK - 5 Library Media Specialist at an International Baccalaureate (IB) Magnet School in CT and the Chief Content Creator for the Digital Citizenship Institute. Previously, I was an elementary classroom teacher, adjunct professor, and Responsive Classroom Consulting Teacher.
Everything I create on is in the spirit of being a student-led virtual teacher. It is pulled from my range of experiences as an educator, lifelong technology adaptor, learner, and Gen Glass mother.
