A Seat at the Table: The Intersection

An evening conversation at a local restaurant turned into an invitation to take part in The Intersection.

I am delighted that a classroom teacher has been given a seat at the table when it comes to the conversations related to education practice, programs and innovation.

When I meet with the thoughtful participants from all walks of life, I will bring forth the stories and experiences of colleagues and students near and far, past and present.

I'll contemplate education as we know it now, and the potential that education holds for meaningful change as we embrace technology and the latest cognitive research.

I hope to take away a broader view of where the world of learning and innovation is moving, and share that view with colleagues through words and practice.

I believe education holds the potential for making our world stronger, more caring and innovative.  I want to learn of others' vision and viewpoint in this regard, and The Intersection will provide me with that wonderful opportunity.
