What’s your first and last name?
- Shari Gateley
What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?
- English Teacher
How are you involved in education?
- I teach AP Language and AP Literature at Putnam City West High School. I am also the English Department chair and serve as a new teacher mentor, senior class sponsor, and on the schools guiding coalition and title I committee.
What does your ideal school or classroom look like?
- My ideal school would be one that implemented project based learning across content areas. Instead of students sitting in 50 minute departmentalized classes, they would work with a team of teachers to understand and come up with solutions for real world problems.
If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
- Design Thinking in action – Design Thinking is a different approach to PBL.
