My role at iLearnNH is to help teachers find ways to use the iLearnNH suite of tools to help make their lives easier and their teaching more effective. I develop training resources and work with schools to deliver professional development that is meaningful to their community.
I like a nice, lazy morning – coffee and reading in bed with the cats. After a slow start to the day, I’d find myself in the mountains with my husband, either rock climbing or running on a beautiful ridgeline. Then I’d meet up with friends or family for dinner, followed by more cat cuddling at home!
I’d either want to learn a new sport, like surfing, or do a Spanish immersion course to really increase my skills.
I hope that in a few years we will have realized how much we need to appreciate and celebrate our teachers for the tremendous amount of work they do. That means compensating them appropriately and treating them as professionals, not martyrs.
I have two cats, Pierre and Topaz. They are both very good boys and best frenemies. Pierre is still a kitten, so he is always running around and playing with toys. Topaz, who is a year older than Pierre, mostly just watches Pierre or sleeps. They love to wrestle and chase each other around the house.
