About Me

I am a kindergarten teacher in Southern California. Inspired by the kids I work with, I strive to make learning purposeful and the school environment an enjoyable place to be for my students. I am the founder of the hashtag #GAfE4Littles and co-author of the book Google Apps for Littles: Believe They Can. More recently, I have brought #GAfE4Littles into joining forces with #InnovatingPlay. I am a co-moderator of the bimonthly #InnovatingPlay #SlowFlipChat, where Jessica Twomey and I facilitate discussions with educators about the ongoing cycle of connecting, wondering, playing, and discovering through a variety of intentional topics. I am a believer of the CAN mindset behind #GAfE4Littles, and have acquired the #InnovatingPlay mindset that learning and teaching can be done without limits.
