I teach humanities at a charter school that works to re-engage struggling middle-schoolers with their education through literacy tutorials and an arts-infused curriculum. Previously, I taught language arts at urban-ring and sub-urban/rural schools in my division. I geek out on assessment and embeddable classroom technology that can disappear into the teaching and learning. Sign in to vote!

I am teaching fourteen wonderful students who are home schooled three days a week, have a Community Day, and a Conference Day. Our charter school works hard with our families to bring the curriculum alive to enrich the learning process for our students. Sign in to vote!

I'd love to hear more about how your school is structured, staffed, and scheduled. One of my professional learning network (PLN) members is a local home-schooling dad and entreprenuer, and we find so much agreement on how to engage kids. I'm looking forward to learning from you!

I started as a parent volunteer at Academie Lafayette French immersion charter school. I have a background in telecommunications and technology, so I started implementing technology such as a phone system, computer network, student database, and support mechanisms such as staffing and funding. I expanded my offer of support to other charter schools in the area, and organized a technology consortium with 11 of the 17 schools at the time. Now I've moved to New York city, and looking for an opportunity to help new charter schools in the area. I love start ups, welcoming administrative teams and working late into the night!
