I was born and raised on the Southern Kenai Peninsula. I have three children; 21, 11, & 8. I have a BA in history and an MAT with a social studies focus. My family enjoys hiking, boating, gaming, & traveling. I first became interested in educational innovation while I was homeschooling my eldest daughter through some of middle and high school. I continued to explore cutting edge, research-based methodologies while volunteering and working for Girl Scouts of Alaska.
PL Strategy to share:
Our school focuses on the Ed Elements "Student Reflection and Ownership" quadrant. I have been working toward empowering my students to develop their own learning journeys through project and play-based learning. I am also focusing on social-emotional and habits of mind learning in my classroom.
