There is always a backstory. So here is mine.
My name is Susan Maynor. I’m a trained educator. I went back to school to study my passion–storytelling–where I learned to show/tell visual stories and design cool graphics and manage digital projects for other people. At some point, my worlds merged, and now I help build educational programs for schools that want to be excellent. I love making things more beautiful. Or old things made new. Or pioneering new endeavors.
I have over 20 years experience in both public and independent schools, as a classroom and media communications teacher, curriculum consultant and disruptive agent of change in education. I now serve as a blended learning coach for EPiC Elementary in Liberty Public Schools. EPiC is an innovative, project-based learning community designed to inspire students to be creative and think big. I have a B.A. in Education (K-9) from Wheaton College, M.A. in Communications from Lindenwood University, a Missouri gifted certification (K-12) from University of Missouri Columbia, and have produced media and video stories for small companies, nonprofits, and various educational institutions.
I consider myself a no-red-light thinker, passionate about transformative learning and re-imagining education. This blog is my journey into rethinking education one creative fest at a time.
