Shannon has worked in rural and urban schools in large systems with the last 20 years in The Exploris School, a small innovative public charter school. As an experienced PBL facilitator, she has co-built a number of teacher cohorts across charter and system schools, supporting teachers to solve problems of practice using PBL.

Tami Perez, business education teacher, Idaho Technical Career Academy (ITCA), Meridian, Idaho
This is Tami’s 11th year in the classroom. She started her PBL experience at a New Tech Network High School spending six years there. This year, she has been part of a pilot program to launch PBL curriculum with her online students. She has taken her knowledge and experience from her bricks-and-mortar PBL classroom and transferred PBL strategies to online learning. There have been many ups and downs this year; however, the journey has been well worth it to see how much the students have grown from the experience.
Tami will be sharing the Hershey project, an online project that she designed for her sophomore marketing students.
