Although this blog was created specifically for my work in the MSU MAET program (Masters of Educational Technology), I will also occasionally use this space to reflect on my life as an educator and the transition from being a teacher to a student after being away from higher education for 6 years.
By day, I am a high school English teacher in Bloomfield Hills, MI. I teach tenth grade American Literature and a new eleventh grade Global Studies and Social Action class focused on blending history and literature while exploring examples of institutionalized murder in our society. I am passionate about literacy education, educational equality, social justice, and student-centered learning. I am also engaged in several professional learning communities, and see great value in the work that educators can do together.
Other interests include music, art (particularly photography), my family, coffee, and my puppy, Kona.
