I am a co-founder of and an academic coach at Meliora, a learning group for grade 6-12 students located in the western suburbs of Chicago. Lifelong learning is one of my deepest values, as is mentoring others, especially adolescent youth. At Meliora, we use project-based learning (PBL) to guide teens into deeper learning through the exploration of topics in the humanities. We #inspirepassion by amplifying student voice and by offering choice in how students demonstrate their evidence of learning.
I also provide PBL coaching services to public and private schools and teachers. I am a certified PBL teacher through the Buck Institute for Education, and stay abreast of best practices in PBL and in education through formal and informal learning, participation in a variety of social media groups, and as a practitioner.
