What do you like best about your involvement in education?

Every day is a new challenge. Therefore, an educator has to keep learning and adapting to be successful.

How I spend my free time

Most of my free time is spent reading, whether it's young adult literature, classic literature, or articles on new educational trends. I am constantly consuming literature to improve my content and pedagogical knowledge, but also to improve my connections with my students.

Current books on my nightstand.

The Tempest by William Shakespeare and The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.

I'd like to meet

Howard Gardner, Arthur Miller, and Elie Wiesel.

Topics or areas of interest

I am especially interested in dramatic literature, differentiation, Web 2.0 tools for the classroom, and ideas for implementing the common core standards.

Are you engaged in other professional learning communities?

I am available on LinkedIn.
