I started the blog TeachPlayLive to share some thoughts as I continue on my journey of teaching and learning. This is an exciting time to be an educator, as innovations in technology are transforming the world we live in and opening up new opportunities in education. I am interested in the areas of teacher-leadership and teaching with technology, and how they can support teaching and learning.
More about myself: I am a working-dad: a Jewish teacher and learner, Middle School Social Science teacher,
doctoral student doctor of education, and, most importantly, father of twins. This fall I started teaching 1st and 2nd grade Engineering.
