Instructional design is the art of teaching. As a classroom teacher, I enjoyed lesson planning and the challenge of finding new ways to engage students and develop meaningful learning experiences. As an administrator, I take the same approach when planning professional development for teachers. By writing Miss Makey and the Magic Bin, I hope to amplify my impact in the profession by providing educators with resources materials, and inspiration to support maker education and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) integration.
