Vision and Purpose

The world around us is constantly and rapidly changing.  This implies the need for education to evolve in order to prepare our children for success in an uncertain future.  My objective is to work in instructional technology and help teachers and administrators foster learning environments that are intellectually stimulating and engaging and encourage all stakeholders to be creative, collaborative, innovative, and reflective.  Helping others to think critically and pursue their passions is one of my most important tasks and I will strive to realize everyone's capacity to lead.  Every action I undertake will be with student learning as the chief priority along with making meaningful connections with teachers and administrators to make sure every child has the opportunity to grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
