Here’s her family, her cheering section:



I asked Stephanie about the Design Thinking Pathway, Authentic PBL, and Real-World Connections

I have chaired a Design Thinking pathway for the last 10 years. It combines English-History-Science and focuses on authentic real-world experiences. Each project involves bringing in panelists. Examples: Person of Inspiration Unit (StoryCorps), Service Learning SDG Unit, Dream Job Unit. I am the co-founder of Global Google Educator Group (GEG) and co-leader of GEG Northern California

We talked about building Collaborative Teams and why she started CanWeTalkEDU

I started CanWeTalkEDU to support educators wanting to use Personality/Learning styles to better help them with staff, colleagues, and students. It helps provide insight on interaction, communication, collaboration, and honoring the strengths of one another, and learning and growing from them. I have implemented monthly challenges that help students and staff grow in Agency. 

Everywhere I look, I see your articles and love your blogs. How are you doing professional learning through writing?

For the last two years, I have written Articles, Blogs and have been a regular writer for Edutopia. I am excited to have a chapter coming out in the BecauseOfATeacher Book! The writing process has really helped me to process my own lessons learned. What I didn’t realize was that these lessons would impact others and once I became more open to sharing my voice through my writing, I became less timid to put it out there.
