I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, EdTech, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of the Crush School Series of Books, which help students understand how their brains process information and learn. I also wrote The Power of Three: How to Simplify Your Life to Amplify Your Personal and Professional Success, but be warned that it's meant for adults who want to thrive and are comfortable with four letter words.

Whether I'm working with students, teachers, or a group of administrators, it is important to me that my audience learns something they can use immediately.

Too often do we sit in a PD session while the speaker talks and shows us tools and strategies we can use on a screen. And while such sessions can be informative, I believe in learning by doing. This is why I design my workshops as making sessions. I want the educators in the audience to take a lesson plan or a digital artifact they can use the next day with them.

I have previously lead Professional Development sessions on creativity, technology, literacy, and giving students choice and voice. I am knowledgeable about the process of learning and teaching students how to learn, brain based strategies, flexible seating, collaborative learning, blended learning, and using educational technology to enhance learning.
