Meet Me In Saint Louis

Riding the end-of-year EDrenaline into a game-changing start to summer!


Honored, humbled, and SUPER excited to have had the opportunity to connect with so many talented, creative, and GAME-CHANGING educators from all around the country at the fifth annual Summit for Transformative Learning in St. Louis, Missouri.

Selfies? Selfies.

Oh you know. Just talking shop with teaching legend Jay McTighe. What a great dude!

Ok gang — so here’s the challenge:

We’ve got 364 days to change the game in our classrooms. As educators, our passions can ignite untold levels of creativity and engagement. And as learners, our enthusiasm is infectious! So what will you do to make your classroom more exciting? More student-centered? And more S.A.F.E.?!

Thank you again for having me, St. Louis. And I’ll see you again NEXT SPRING!
