121writing

Advisor

I am working with the developers of 121 Writing, a Google Drive app that allows teachers to record voice-based feedback to student writing directly into Google Drive.
This app delivers the most effective level of feedback while solving the workflow issues that kept many teachers from using voice-based feedback.
My role is to provide the practical and pedagogical understanding of what teachers need from a tool like this in traditional as well as Hybrid and distance learning classrooms.

Career

Dawson College Bound at the Alexander Dawson School

Master Writing Teacher

DCB supports and mentors academically promising students in the Las Vegas area. Fewer than 7% of high achieving middle school students in this area will complete a 4 year college education. Through mentoring and intense summer learning in a close knit and supportive community DCB is working to change this trend. As the Writing teacher I get to help students develop the skills and confidence to share their voice with the world. This is good work to do.
