I am a learner.
Learning energizes me, excites me, and gives me deep satisfaction.

Because I am a passionate learner, I choose to spend my days as a teacher.  What greater joy could there be than to share the thrill and adventure of learning with others?

I teach middle school students.
I devote much of my professional learning towards assessment.
My journey in assessment is leading my interests more towards cognition – specifically towards the neuroscience behind learning.  I am beginning to diversify my professional learning to include much more in this area and am excited about where that journey may lead.

Much, much more could be said about pretty much everything that I’ve just stated, but I’ll leave all of that for blog posts to come.

  1. Hi Jodi,
    I really enjoyed your two blog posts on reading and neuroscience and know of the conference you referenced. I wanted to invite you to learn more about an amazing group of people on a mission to balance and strengthen the brains of kids with developmental challenges such as dyslexia, autism, ADHD. There is a company called Brain Balance Centers started by De. Robert Melillo and we work across the country at strengthening the weaker hemisphere so kids can connect with more joy and success through life and learning. There is only one center in MA but we would love to invite you out for a tour so you can learn more by seeing us in action. http://Www.brainbakancewestspringfield.com 413-737-5437.

    And if you don’t have the ability to come for a visit check out: Disconnected Kids by Dr. Robert Melillo. He is changing the world one kid and family at a time through his cutting edge understanding and approach to remediating childhood neurodevelomental delays.

  2. Hi Jodi,

    I came across your blog on Twitter. I’m a speech-language pathologist who works with children who have language-based learning disabilities. I found your recap of your experience and learning, really fascinating. May I share it on my blog (alphabetaerobicsspeech.com) and social media?

    Thanks! Looking forward to hearing more about your training!



    • Thanks Emily – I’m glad you found some useable knowledge in there. I would be honoured to have you share it. I have two additional posts from this course that will be posted in coming days. I’ll be sure to check out your site as well. 🙂
