Kelly Shafsky

Middle School Teacher

Santa Cruz, California

I’ve been an educator for over 30 years, first as a high school teacher, then helping to build a start-up educational publishing company, and these past 12 years teaching middle school in east San Jose, California. My areas of focus these past dozen years have been integrating technology into my classroom teaching; developing and executing Project Based Learning units with a social justice emphasis, and most recently addressing my students’ social emotional needs through strategies and practices that promote student agency.
