As an educator, I worked with Baltimore City Schools as a teacher for gifted students and as a Science Curriculum Consultant -- I also worked as an Education Specialist at the Maryland Science Center. Additionally, I have over 14 years of experience as a Mathematics and Science Content Developer. I've worked on a wide variety of projects, including textbook customization, assessment development, and the production of digital learning tools. My most recent projects have focused on aligning K-12 curriculum with Common Core Mathematics and Next Generation Science Standards. I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology, and I'm passionate about creating exciting, hands-on learning experiences for kids of all ages. I have two young children who inspire my work and my commitment to the responsible use of media. When I'm not developing content or reviewing apps, I enjoy running 5Ks, spending time with my kids, inventing new recipes, and reading about the latest developments for using technology in education.
