What gives me the biggest sense of purpose is what I am most passionate about. Professionally my passions are students, teaching with technology, and leadership. I am committed to teach the whole learner. I love teaching academics as much as I love teaching students about the Seven Habits of Highly Effective people, mindfulness, persistence, and empathy. When teaching academics, I love to try new things and welcome new ideas from students and peers. If I can try to purposefully integrate a new tool into the learning experience, I am willing to break from past precedent and see where it leads our learning. Another aspect of technology I am passionate about is digital citizenship. I feel digital citizenship links both my love of technology and teaching the whole learner. I want all students to be prepared for their future in the digital world as responsible digital citizens. Lastly, I am passionate about leadership. Helping and teaching others is purposeful to me and I enjoy opportunities to lead with my peers. I would love to connect my passions for technology and leadership in a technology integrationist position for my school district someday.
