Hi there, that’s me up top with the microphone. I was at the 2016 PLTW Summit in Indianapolis, Indiana, doing one of my favorite things, teaching teachers about technology.
I love the multiplication effect that takes place when I can do this. By making a room full of teachers a little bit more prepared or a little bit more effective I can, in some small way, make things better for each student they teach from now on.
That’s really at the core of who I am; I pour myself into each presentation, video, or blog post to make something that will help people in a practical and scalable way.
I love my time in the classroom and have enjoyed being a high school science teacher. I have been extremely well supported by my administration, my friends, and my family. One day I hope to take my skills and experience to an Instructional Designer or Project Manager position.
Wherever I go next, I plan on helping people be better by making cool stuff.
I was first exposed to the concept of an Impossible List by Thomas Frank. Essentially an Impossible List is a cross between a Hydra and Bucket List. As you cross items off your Impossible List, you replace those items with harder versions. This encourages perpetual growth. See mine here.
