BPGE_Side_FINAL_PNGI co-founded and led Blue Planet Global Education (originally Blue Planet Writers’ Room) from 2008 through 2022. I worked directly with students in grades 3-12, connecting them to groups of their peers around the world in creative writing- and arts-based projects, and I led professional development for educators in how to teach core curriculum and global competence with international classroom-to-classroom initiatives.
