After teaching college English, Amy entered the K-12 sector and found out that teaching was not what she thought it would be. After 1.3 years as an self-described "unsuccessful" teacher, she learned what all great teachers know, you've got to figure out how to get people interested in what you want them to learn. This epiphany has driven her ever since. Whether it's staff development for adults or digital citizenship for children, Amy is obsessed with engagement, how people work, and what gets them truly, deeply interested as well as what kills motivation every time. One thing you can ALWAYS count on from Amy is getting a little truthiness with your inspiration. Come prepared ready to say, "me too," and mean it!
