Students are capable of many things. It takes a good teacher to help them learn. But a great teacher inspires them to take ownership of their learning. Today’s teachers need to be performance artists—taking their content to a new level. My aim is to bridge the gap between the generation teachers’ grew up in and the one in which our students are growing up.

While we’re still trying to find the right blend of instructional practices to engage them, students are becoming more and more influenced by their technology. Until that balance is found, I will continue to play and experiment with the necessary tools to bring the students into a digital-rich era.
