With more than 18 years of experience in education, I'm currently teaching abroad in Italy. I am seeking an elementary classroom position or employment as a technology or learning coach. I believe in education that is relevant and progressive, one that allows children to explore their passions while developing the skills and knowledge to overcome any obstacle that may stand in their way.
