Heather Calabro

Teacher in Simsbury, CT

I was a founding faculty member of Mid-Pacific Institute's eXploratory Program, a core subject curriculum with project-based learning as the primary focus of student work, with 10 years of experience in the Social Studies classroom. I am an advocate and practitioner of leveraging interdisciplinary, 21st century technology and skills to solve authentic, real world problems. It is my belief that students benefit the most in an environment that balances student-centered project work with structure. I am also a PD provider, having developed the curriculum for a 4-day educator workshop called Kupu Hou, helping dozens of teachers to write project-based learning curriculum for their classrooms.
