I believe strongly in the ability of technology to empower every student to achieve their best. Technology engages students in ways that were not possible when I was a child, and I want to harness that power to enable all learners. Through Learnstyle, I have the opportunity to reach a magnitude of learners and show them how technology can enable their learning, and allow their knowledge to shine through finally, which may not be possible through the traditional method of pen and paper.
Nelson Mandela, despite great adversity, went on to create a new nation and attempted to heal generations of racial divide.
Education, specifically game-based learning. As someone passionate about video games I’m constantly thinking of creative ways to use games such as Minecraft to empower student learning.

Exploring the World
I got the chance to live and teach abroad. Visiting new countries was a personal highlight because of the ways other cultures influenced me when I was growing up.
