I am an elementary administrator passionate about leading change to meet the needs of today’s students.  This blog represents my thoughts on education.  #OutsideTheBoxED came about as an idea of a way to encourage and celebrate student innovation, 4Cs essential skills, entrepreneurship education, PBL, and STEM.
I earned my Doctorate of Education from The University of South Alabama.  My dissertation study, “Leading the Charge in Changing Times: 21st Century Learning and Leading” explored the need for a paradigm shift in education. My research sparked an interest and belief in this topic and a love for writing.
I plan to use this space to share #OutsideTheBoxED tools, strategies, and thoughts that other educators will hopefully find beneficial in generating a discussion to shift their culture from #EDUtradition to #OutsideTheBoxED
