It is a pleasure to spend my days providing Instructional Technology resources, advice, and assistance to staff, students and administration in a local school district here in New Rochelle, New York.  Every day is a new adventure and a new chance to make a difference in educational technology.  It is a joy working with the staff that I am assigned to support.  Feedback from those in my building and from my extended PLN encourages me to be increasingly learning independently.  I enjoy the challenge of finding new resources, solving problems, and providing content-rich engaging learning opportunities for students and teachers.
In previous years, I discovered the learning theories of #makermovement, #STEAMEdu, #unconference, and #flexibleseating. These ideas swirled and brewed in my brain. With support from administration, I created a community area in our elementary school. It is a place for us to explore the combined transdisciplinary approaches of learning. Our Cafe is a Community Area Focused on Education. It serves as part staff lounge, professional development area, makerspace, and instructional area for transdisciplinary education.
