I am a 20+ year veteran of the middle school classroom, a Google for Education Certified Innovator, National Board Certified Teacher, Bay Area Writing Project Teacher Consultant, and a 2015 Henry Ford Teacher Innovator 1st place award winner, with an M.A. in Educational Technology.  I strive to bring authentic, engaging project-based learning to my students, and am currently energized by the many ways that new technologies can improve the work we all do in the classroom.  Whether it’s the flipped classroom or the flat classroom, I’m looking for ways to make literature and writing exciting for 8th graders…. ’cause if they’re excited, so am I.
