INFOhio, Ohio’s PreK-12 Digital Library, supports educators statewide by providing quality digital content, web tools, and professional development at no cost. Through our train-the-trainer INFOhio ICoach program, teacher leaders learn to integrate INFOhio’s digital content into instruction using our Learning Pathways training curriculum. Educators build capacity as teacher leaders by offering professional development opportunities for their own schools and districts on INFOhio tools and resources. INFOhio empowers Ohio educators to become teacher leaders by expanding their professional learning network through our ICoach train-the-trainer program.
Every quarter, INFOhio will be featuring the amazing work of INFOhio ICoaches across the state. Not only are INFOhio ICoaches trained to share INFOhio’s quality resources with their schools and districts, but they are also champions of equity. At INFOhio, we believe that every Ohio student deserves the opportunity to learn from high-quality, standards-aligned instructional materials to become a resilient, lifelong learner who contributes to society. In alignment with Ohio Department of Education’s Each Child, Our Future strategic plan, we support the core principles of equity, partnerships, and quality schools.
WHEN YOU HAVE 30 MINUTES OF FREE TIME, HOW DO YOU PASS THE TIME?
Thirty minutes of free time sometimes seems so hard to come by. I try to give myself at least this amount of time each day. Generally, you can find me in the middle of a run passing 30 minutes of free time. It is my self-care, helps me to decompress, and grounds me so I can be the best version of myself!
WHO INSPIRES YOU? WHY?
My daughter Ella-Grace inspires me every day! Her love for life, creative nature, and spunkiness help keep me focused on what is truly important! She has such love and empathy for everyone and when I need some positivity in my life she inspires me to have a positive outlook!
