Cook Up A New Recipe for Learning at Your School or Event

I would love to come speak to your group at a conference or a school. I am available for half day and full day workshops as well as sessions at conferences and events. Perspective, Purpose, and Passion are always at the forefront of any professional development I deliver.

If you are struggling with how to purposefully integrate iPads into your classroom and/or to prepare your students to be college and career ready, I have many topics for you to choose from. I can also customize a session just for you and your staff. Below are some of my current topics and offerings:
