Ginger provides dynamic and hands-on learning for those interested in providing engaging professional learning opportunities for teachers, administrators, parents, and communities.
I’m a national consultant & keynote speaker with ESSDACK, a non-profit education service center. I inspire and help all levels of educators figure out the in’s and out’s of Project/Problem Based Learning, technology integration, and working with gifted and high-ability learners. I’m passionate about helping educators rethink and revision what teaching and learning can be in today’s world. There’s nothing better than watching the faces of educators as they watch their own students get excited about learning and doing things that they never thought was possible. Because of my background as a learner, teacher, and school leader, I know exactly what that feels like. It’s the most awesome thing in the world…because in that moment, everything is possible and we want to do it again.
