I am a passionate and dedicated teacher and lover of media, technology and the arts. I believe inclusion and diversified learning environments are best able to educate students in ways that celebrate diversity,and also prepare students to thrive in a fast-paced multi-cultural society.
I strongly believe that teaching technology in the classroom is essential for 21st century students in order for them to thrive in any industry.
I believe I am especially suited for a position teaching communication technology at the high school level as my diverse experience and educational background allows me to connect with students as both mentor and guide during the learning process.
