I have seen time and time again a hidden brilliance in the students I encounter in my classroom. For too long this brilliance has been stifled by a system that represses creativity and innovation with rows, textbooks, and lectures. But I am part of a tribe of people working to unleash the potential of every student we encounter by rethinking and retooling what this system looks like.
I am a teacher.
That's why I teach students with project based learning. And give keynotes, workshops, and write about my work in the classroom and how effective authentic education can be. I recently presented a TED talk at Tedx San Antonio called "School Should Take Place in the Real World," and my spoken word poem was featured in the Huffington Post.
My beautiful bride is named Alli and we have a boy named Jack and little princess named Piper. Their favorite activities are pointing out rocks and riding our golden retriever Zeke.
School should not be boring. Life either.
