I'm a speaker, author, and teacher in Phoenix, Arizona. I want to see kids embrace creativity. It's why I co-wrote Wendell the World's Worst Wizard and co-founded Write About. It's also why I want to think creatively about teaching and learning.I want to see kids embrace creativity. It's why I co-wrote Wendell the World's Worst Wizard and co-founded Write About.
