I go by just Acker no Mr needed. I truly love the world of project based learning because we all get to learn together! In my daily journeys I find myself thinking about project ideas…all…the…time. Being a design/maker-educator I get to be inspired by my students and the community every day. Bringing together elements of humanities, science, math and engineering is what makes me so excited about about teaching in a project based school. I never want to stop learning and find myself trying new things even if it is outside my “comfort zone”. My son Ryland has been a student at the School of Rock from the age of three. Seeing him perform over the past six years has inspired me to begin learning the electric guitar and bass. Just recently I joined a class on how to be in a band! Less boredom, more fun, deeper learning and lots of laughter on the way!
