A little about the presenter...
I am an educator, learner, writer, presenter, and researcher. I began my teaching career in 1999 in Athens, OH, and have spent the last 14 years as a Spanish instructor at Lockport Township High School in Lockport, IL. I am a passionate educator who values learning above all else. I have extensively researched standards based learning, assessment, and grading in order to maximize student growth and achievement. I enjoy working with new technology to differentiate instruction and connect with the students on a new level. I work with teachers to improve instructional practice and grading policies. In my free time I like to travel, read, run, and cook. I also love to spend time with my husband and our two wonderful sons.
