Inspire Your Learners with Play-Based Learning
Meet the Maker
Director of Arts Integration and Play
If you could pick up a new skill in an instant, what would it be?
I’d like to learn woodworking so that I can build mud kitchens, blocks, and other magical things for kids to play with and learn from.
What’s your favorite family tradition?
Our annual Family Cribbage Tournament on St. Patrick’s Day is a blast! Lots of noise and shenanigans.
You have to sing karaoke. What song do you pick?
“I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz. It’s in a key I can sing, and there aren’t too many lyrics. I can kind of play it on my ukulele too! Whoop!
