Dear MindShift fans,
It's an honor and a privilege to be the new editor of MindShift. I've been a fan since the site's inception and I'm humbled to be entrusted with this community by Tina Barseghian.
I've spent most of my life serving public radio's mission in broadcast and digital. I was a digital news trainer for five years, helping NPR member station reporters develop the skills necessary to reach audiences on digital platforms. I know first-hand the importance of teachers and the people they serve.
My interest in learning began as a personal one. When I was pregnant with my first child, I read NurtureShock and What's Going on in There. Since then, I've been eager to understand ideas and practices that challenge, and sometimes reinforce, conventional wisdom. Through MindShift, I've learned so much from the featured teachers, writers, commenters, and tinkerers who have shaped the state of learning.
I look forward to connecting with you in the months and years ahead. We have some exciting plans in the works so I hope you'll stay tuned. In the meantime, please feel free to be in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'd love to know what you're working on and experiencing that is challenging and advancing how we will learn.
