I want to live in a world where students are challenged, teachers are appreciated, and people still handwrite thank you notes. As the IB PYP coordinator at Swigert, I have been excited to collaborate with teams of teachers to create engaging units of inquiry and extend learning into the surrounding community. I want to inspire teachers to be innovative and creative as they challenge and engage students. When I’m not supporting teachers, I can be found kayaking with my two boys, biking with my husband, or laughing in my book club. A relentless overachiever, I can make minute rice in less than 60 seconds.
