Andrea believes that learning needs to be meaningful and engaging for students. She is a proponent for STEAM education and opportunities for high school experiences beyond the classroom, which might include vocational education, “College Now” programs for juniors and seniors or internship opportunities. She believes that students who have a personal connection to the materials being taught , understand and further grasp the concepts being presented. That connection can be built through a relationship with the teacher, engaging hands-on activities, flipped classrooms and/or utilizing whatever the current trend is, ie - Tik Tok, Instagram, Snapchat. But above all, creating physically and emotionally safe spaces in schools for ALL students is her primary focus.
