What do you do at iLearnNH?

I'm the Director of iLearnNH. My role is to work directly with the University System of New Hampshire (USNH) and the New Hampshire Department of Education (NHDOE) to help schools adopt the iLearnNH suite of tools. With the work of the iLearnNH team, we provide implementation support and targeted professional development based on the needs of each school and district.

Describe a favorite moment working with the iLearnNH team.

One favorite moment was in November of 2020 when our team helped a director of a school in New Hampshire get approval to join one of the iLearnNH Canvas Cohorts. When we started conversations about the possibility of them joining us, I could not imagine that this school would not only successfully incorporate all facets of our services but implement the tools in such a short time.

If you could design your perfect Saturday, what would it look like?

I would start my perfect Saturday with a mountain bike ride in the morning and then head to the town fields to watch my kids play in one of their lacrosse or baseball games.

If you could spend three months learning something new, what would you choose?

I would like to learn to play guitar.  Twenty years ago I bought a guitar but never invested the proper amount of time to learn how to actually play the instrument. I think 20 years is long enough for it to be “new” again.

It’s 2025. What is one way education is different for teachers or students?

I think that more and more schools will have open campuses where students are not tied to a classroom and the requirement of seat time. The traditional need of a teacher providing information in front of a class will be more informal and the classroom will not be limited to brick and mortar buildings.

Most importantly... any pets?
