Joli is a truly innovative educator. I've had the pleasure of seeing her in action as she presented some learning activities to a group of judges (myself included). She speaks with passion and true love for her students. Her learning activities are always incredibly rich with rigor and depth. She has deserved and won many awards; including the Microsoft Partners in Learning innovative educator award!
