Description: This is part of a Skype conversation with Michelle Baldwin, Laurel Beaton and I. Michelle and Laurel discuss their different schools, and despite the contrast in programs, a common theme was making learning more engaging and meaningful for students.
Show Notes: (Listen Now!)
My name is Michelle Baldwin, and I am a learner, an educator, a self-proclaimed “techie,” presenter, and an advocate for teaching and learning with students.
I returned to the classroom in 2009, after coordinating technology professional/staff development for eight years in a suburban school district in Omaha, Nebraska. From fall of 2009 through spring of 2011, I taught K-5 Vocal Music in the same school district. In August 2011, I moved to Denver, Colorado and joined the staff of Anastasis Academy.

My goal is simple; providing all students the opportunity to learn. I am motivated by creating connections through our passions, our purpose, and our potential.
