I have taught all grade levels from 7-12 in Social Studies and currently teach at the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, an inquiry-driven, project-based high school focused on modern learning. My practice has deep roots in experiential education, taking students from the classroom to the real world and back again. Before finding my way to Philadelphia, I was an active member of the teaching community in Flagstaff, AZ where I was named Technology Teacher of the Year for Arizona and a member of the Governor’s Master Teacher Corps. Recently I was featured on TED.com for the “How to Learn? From Mistakes” talk and recognized for earning National Board Certification. My publications include a featured piece on the New York Times Learning blog, co-authoring a chapter in an educational leadership book, an upcoming article in the Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy and regular contributions to teachinghistory.org.
