Who I Am

Hi! I’m Brittany.

First and foremost, I’m a Christian. Christ is at the center of all that I am, and all that I do.

I’m also a teacher, blogger, trip leader, and Google Classroom consultant. I love finding creative ways to support students and teachers.

When it comes to education, I’m passionate about creating authentic learning opportunities for my students. I believe, and I’ve seen, that people learn best through real-world experiences. This has manifested in my creating, leading, and facilitating opportunities for students to authentically learn 21st century skills.

As far as the methods for bringing about these experiences, I really focus on teaching students using projects, technology, travel, and the outdoors. The world is a great classroom! I believe this is true for teachers, too – which is why I also lead trips for teachers during school breaks and throughout summer!

I teach ELA to amazing 4th grade students on the Fort Apache Reservation. I feel truly humbled to be here as someone who isn’t a tribal member. It’s been an amazing honor to learn about their rich culture.

As you’ve figured out, I’m also a blogger! I actually run a few different websites, but here is where I really bear my soul. I blog about faith, education, teaching and travel. I know it might seem like education and teaching are the same topic, but they’re not – and you’ll see why as you explore my blog! 🙂

I’m also a consultant for Google Classroom. I’m working through the process of becoming a Google Trainer. As of right now, I have a lot of knowledge, experience, and ideas for application with Google Classroom. I’ll even set yours up for you if you need that kind of support. If you’re interested in Google Classroom setup and/or consulting, hop on over to my services page! I’d be happy to help.

Need support, but you’re not sure about getting a consulting session? I have a ton of free resources, too! Join my Google Classroom Crash Course. It’s totally free. Note that you will need to join with a personal email ending in @gmail.com. School domain emails won’t work.

I look forward to getting to know you!
