I became a teacher after an enjoyable career as a video-game designer, working on Nintendo titles such as de Blob and Marvel Super Hero Squad. I love using this experience to design lessons and units that truly engage and challenge my student’s curiosity and creativity in fun and exciting ways. From coding challenges with drones, Spheros and Scratch games and Makey Makey’s, to collaborative Google apps to Skyping around the world sharing our learning experiences and culture, I believe in using technology to engage students in all aspects of the curriculum. The idea of shaping the future generation and teaching to jobs and careers of the future continues to inspire me.
