EXPERTISE
 
I'M AN INNOVATOR

Within education, I am constantly looking at where we can continue to grow, improve, but especially to use design thinking to solve problems, iterate solutions, and to incorporate 21st-century skills, such as technology usage, collaboration, global competence, and connections to college and career.

I'M A LEADER

It is important to me to empower teachers to become the exceptional professionals they can be to ensure the most excellent experiences for student learning.  As a visionary and pioneering thinker in education, I am comfortable facilitating change efforts and continual improvement.

I'M A GLOBAL CITIZEN

Not only do I view myself as a global citizen, but I want teachers and students to see themselves in all their interconnectedness.  Students today will use their 21st-century skills to solve complex problems, such as healthcare, poverty, climate change, access and equity, and much more.
