About Me

Erin’s work has focused on supporting K-12 students and teachers for over a decade. As executive editor of education content for Common Sense, she provides teachers with practical tips and strategies for using classroom technology, and helps students use media productively to become critical thinkers and creators. Prior to her work with Common Sense, Erin taught English at a public high school in Kansas City and evening classes to adult English learners. Her time as a National Writing Project Teacher Consultant nurtured her passion for student digital creation and media literacy. She has bachelor's degrees in English and secondary education and a master's degree in instructional design and technology. Erin loves to knit, read, hike, and cook. But who has time for hobbies with two young kids? In her free time these days, you'll find her hanging out at playgrounds, the zoo, and the beach with her family.

Since this is our own product, we will never review it ourselves. But we would love Teacher Reviews from teachers like you. Teacher Reviews are ratings and reviews from teachers that include advice for how to use technology in the classroom.
