I have been an educator in the state of New Jersey for 16 years and have been both a classroom teacher and media specialist in grades K-12 and currently as a Library Media Specialist for grades 9-12. As an independent educational consultant I have taken a specific professional interest in developments in new media and vanguard techniques in interactive and transmedia (multi-platform) storytelling. I have written for various publications and have spoken at events that focus on next-generation teaching methods and tools.
“To me, the most exciting development in education today is the myriad of new technologies and media that have allowed us the opportunity to rethink, restructure, and redefine how education is acquired. Building upon methods and techniques from the 19th century, we are now able to expand learning experiences across multiple platforms- merging technology with content and with genuine human experience”.
My goal is to create learning experiences that empower and equip students with necessary skills to effectively produce and consume content across multiple media platforms. I am also driven to enable educators and cohorts in applying these innovative methods and cutting-edge technology in their fields of expertise.
