I’m a Vice-Principal from Ontario, Canada interested in engaging and empowering students using constructivist learning environments that bring the arts, science, math and technology together in powerful ways. I’ve co-founded Minds On Media, a professional learning model that empowers teachers to transform their practice using technology, along with my colleague, Peter Skillen. I’ve been fortunate in recent years to be able to provide workshops and presentations for teachers through my involvement with The Ontario Teachers’ Federation, The Educational Computing Organization of Ontario and an opportunity to be a Connected Coach and Community Leader with Powerful Learning Practice. I also teach the AQ Course: Integration of Information and Computer Technology in Instruction for Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.
In 2008 I received my Master of Education in Curriculum, Teaching and Learning from OISE/UT with a focus on technology in education. I have been honoured to receive the ISTE Making IT Happen Award in October 2011, the UGDSB Everyday Hero Award in June 2013, and the YMCA/YWCA Women of Distinction Award in June 2014.
