Tell us a bit about your role and how you became a part of the team at Twig.
I am a consultant but I also help with many different things for the company. I help run the Facebook page, conduct training, helped write the distance learning lessons, and am in the model lesson videos. I got introduced to Twig by a sales consultant who asked me to join the team. At that time, I was teaching full-time (10 years) and was looking for something fun and new in education. My first big Twig experience was going to Las Vegas for our first sales meeting where I was in awe because I got to meet the team who wrote the curriculum and meet our CEO, Cathrine.
In 3 words, how would you best describe Twig Education to our followers?
Innovative, engaging, and student-centered.
What is your favorite thing about your role at Twig?
Meeting teachers from all over! I love being able to share my own experience of teaching Twig with others who are new to it. It’s fun to pass on that “spark” for Twig to others.
What helps motivate you on those days when you need a little push?
The students and teachers! If I give a dull presentation then teachers won’t be excited to use Twig, which will affect the students. I always think about how great this program is and how it can influence future scientists and engineers in the world, so I always try my best to make sure teachers see how easy it is to use and implement.
If you weren’t working at Twig Education, what would you be doing?
Teaching. Or my dream job right now would be a Peloton instructor.
If you could go back in time and give advice to your 16-year-old self, what would it be?
Trust yourself and have fun! It is a big world out there!
Could you share an interesting fact about yourself for our followers? Something that we don’t already know about you?
I use to be a portray character at Disneyland and even met one of my students during my student teaching as Buzz Lightyear. I am addicted to my Peloton. I have 2 kids under 4.
