Ginger is an PBL consultant and keynote speaker with ESSDACK, a non-profit education service center based in Hutchinson Kansas. She specializes in Project/Problem Based Learning, maker education, technology integration, trauma and resiliency-building, and gifted & high ability learners.
Ginger is passionate about helping educators rethink what teaching and learning can be in today’s world.
"There's nothing better than watching the face of a teacher, or a group of educators, or an entire school, as they watch their kids get excited about learning and doing things they never thought was possible. I know exactly what that feels like from the perspective of the learner, the teacher, and the school leader. Because in that moment, everything is possible. It’s the feeling of endless possibilities for all involved -- and we want to do it again and again."
