Marin Headlands, Sausalito, California.
The chance to learn and create like this is rarely available in the public school setting. Time on task, multiple roles, outdated structures, and little reach to the bigger world prevent this, and that's why my work with this start-up has added a needed element when it comes to my desire to teach children well.

In the meantime, however, I will deepen my focus on quality when it comes to learning design--the kind of quality that embeds common core standards in deep learning experiences for children, experiences that engage, empower, and educate.
There's much to learn on this journey, and for now my "teachers" include UClass, The Deeper Learning MOOC, my school system collaboration and endeavor, and best of all, the bright, enthusiastic children who inspire me every school day.
