This is the first attempt I have made to quickly show what the software STEAMHAMLET will tackle as part of its existence on planet Earth. Please take a look and give me feedback! Thanks!
English Teacher & Creative EdTech Collaborator
I am a National Board Certified Teacher in the high school English classroom, which I see as an open space to integrate all content areas. I am not a ‘test answers at the back of the book’ teacher. I work to engage in authentic dialogue and inquiry with students about texts, and I help them to develop critical and questioning minds. I have 20 years of experience teaching and plan to continue.
Technology and the arts have a central place in my classroom and approach. Microsoft selected me as a 2018 Global Minecraft Mentor. I create a space for students to work with (not at) computers to create meaningful, well-written content that is also aesthetically pleasing and artistically cohesive. I believe that we have not yet fully harnessed the power and potential of computers. To this end, I have embarked upon my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership for Social Justice with a focus on Educational Technology.
You can count me among the innovators, the intellectuals, and the seekers. I work for social justice through education. I am currently researching and developing educational-use software to disrupt traditional K20 schooling practices.
