And the response by Grant Wiggins
The basic concepts of deeper learning are not new to education; indeed, they are routine educational practice for many accomplished individual teachers and educators and some high-performing schools. These successful practices are now being confirmed by increasing bodies of evidence underscoring the necessity for deeper learning as an integral part of the education process.
Deeper learning prepares students to
know and master core academic content;think critically and solve complex problems;work collaboratively;communicate effectively; and be self-directed and able to incorporate feedback.- See more at: http://deeperlearning4all.org/about-deeper-learning#sthash.7EX0BTDZ.dpuf

I also serve as President for SETconnections
which is a nonprofit organization that seeks to to promote an overall
understanding of technology and its benefits and to then assist in
utilizing technology to improve the field of education with an emphasis
on special education.
I have completed a Doctorate from Roosevelt University, Chicago in Educational Leadership and Organizational Change, a Masters from Roosevelt in Teacher Leadership, and my undergraduate work was in Secondary Education with the ability to teach Science and Music.
I began working at Maine Township in 2007. Before coming here I was a Technology Coordinator at Conant High School in Hoffman Estates, IL where I had also taught Science and Music since 1996. Other teaching experience includes working as an adjunct professor at Roosevelt University and presenting at various conferences locally and around the country. I have also worked as a Youth Director at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Wheaton, IL and as a consultant for Riverside Publishing.
I have a beautiful family at home. My wife, Annel, is a Bilingual teacher in Glendale Heights, IL and teaches a 1st/2nd grade Spanish Bilingual loop. I have 2 wonderful children Maria and Henry - who both teach me every day that there is still a lot to learn about this world and myself.
I truly believe that each of us has a special purpose and that we all have something special to offer the world that no one else has to give. Education can be one of the tools that we use to find and develop that gift. What we do with it is up to us.
