Everyday I work to increase student engagememnt and learning in the Career and Technical Education (CTE) area at Patrick Henry High School. As Program Coordinator and Department Chair, my goal is to both support and challenge students through the PLTW / Engineering, Digital Media and IBCP Programs.
I also enjoy working with Henry's own FIRST Team 2500- Herobotics, (Website) as well as MN FIRST and US FIRST the high school level award winning robotics team. We are part of Career and Technical Education (CTE) in Minneapolis Public Schools.
Past projects where I have worked with students include:
Students in Herobotics have created numbeous award winning videos: Herobotics 2012, Herobotics 2014, Herobotics 2015, Herobotics 2016. The student video and audio producers have won numerous awards and received notable recognition from the Minneapolis Public School Board and KARE11 and other area professionals for their work. Student projects have included a documentary on Desmond Tutu's visit to North Minneapolis, A commercial project, PSAs about health issues, and an educational program about the Strong School, Strong City referendum.
