Title: Videos To Support Development of Teacher Leadership Pipeline & Career Pathways

Jessica’s Short Story: I am a Colorado native completely committed to teaching, learning and leading — within and beyond the classroom. I love middle schoolers, reading, writing and nourishing my inner edu-geek on Twitter and through design thinking workshops. I believe every child deserves a passionate, skilled, growth mindset oriented teacher who is willing to model risk-taking and the joy (and struggle) of authentic learning.

Jessica’s Idea In A Nutshell: Let’s deprivatize our practice through videotaping, model vulnerability, & learn and grow from one another to accelerate student learning.
