As a Math, basketball teacher / EdTech coach for the past 14 years, I'm increasingly aware of the skills set needed by both teenagers and adults alike for the VUCA world. The amount of value-add and the sphere of influence can be unlimited once tapped into, and the joy of unlocking it has kept me going all this while.

5 years in, and I still feel that the Google Innovator Program is one of the best professional developments I've had as a teacher. With an increase in self-confidence in developing pedagogical skills in tandem with innovative skills picked up during the Academy, I would like to mentor and support newly minted Innovators on their journey too. My skills have evolved from story-telling to video animation skills, which I feel are essential in supporting students' learning during a stop-start pandemic education.
