Who am I as an educator?
📍 Currently living & working in Atlanta, Shenzhen, Chicago
As a technology coach, building relationships and fostering a culture of collaboration guide much of what I do. My aim is to allow learners the space to seek out and engage with their interests, to help them experience the value of deep exploration, and to offer them the weight of our experience and learn alongside them.
My areas of expertise include visual and presentation literacy, contemporary learning practices and creating agile learning environments.
