I come from a family of educators, but I rejected the family profession. Ironically, it turns out that I love learning, so here I am, Director of Global Development at Flipped Learning Worldwide and the architect of the Flipped Learning Global Initiative. I joined the education community in 2005, working closely with national education organizations on community outreach and professional development. Over the last decade, I’ve, led the development of community platforms for the Association of Curriculum Developers (ASCD); the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), the International Reading Association (IRA), the National Associations for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the National Association of School Nurses (NASN), the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), the National Parent Teachers Association (NPTA), and the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO). I’ve worn many hats over the course of my professional career including, Executive Director of the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences, fourteen years as a corporate trainer, and eleven years as Executive Producer of professional development programming at BAM Education Radio Network. I’m a 20+ year veteran of traditional media, where I had the good fortune to work with two Emmy winning teams. In the 90’s, I received four Emmy nominations and an Emmy Award in 2002. For thirty years I’ve been collaborating with high-performing people, doing transformative work, making lots of mistakes, and keeping copious notes. Thrilled to have had the opportunity to co-author the book Flipped Learning 3.0: The Operating System for the Future of Talent Development, with Jon Bergmann.
