First and foremost, I help children realize that they love Science! I specialize in developing and nurturing critical thinking skills and in recognizing individualized learning patterns in children. Once children are taught to become expert learners, based on their strengths and interests, they truly start to flourish. I customized brain-based learning models to design and implement new curriculum, student programs and research-based initiatives. My focus is on developing innovative formal and informal STEM learning experiences while heavily leveraging various technologies to enhance them. With nearly 20 years of experience in teaching, education innovation and education management, I am now starting to collaborate with other education pioneers in a series of 21st century instructional design think tanks in NY and NC!
