Stefanie Blouin, Community of Practice Network Organizer

Before joining NGLC, I was the director of curriculum for a district in Vermont facilitating curriculum and assessment development, analyzing data, and supporting teachers and administrators with ongoing professional learning. I was a classroom teacher for eight years and a teacher leader for three years—I will always be a teacher at heart! I look through this practitioner’s lens, thinking about what’s best for students, as I develop grantee supports.

As a classroom teacher, my passion was connecting with and growing each individual student. I LOVE that I get to support breakthrough model designers as they implement personalized learning. I’m a systems-thinker and detail-oriented—a mix of big picture thinking and get-it-done muscle. I love to run, hike, and explore the world. My favorite place to be is on a beach with my kids.
