About Me

Hi, My Name is Joe.

That’s the standard name tag greeting you would get should you see me at a conference somewhere, not because I wouldn’t want to stop and talk but because I most likely would be running from place to place.

This blog is written by an ambitious, creative, problem solving, social media invested, driven young professional. I am an achiever, a competitor, a life long learner, an organizer, and I love helping others see and reach their maximum potential.

I write because I can. I share ideas because I can. I contribute to the intellectual capital of the community in which I live, learn, and breathe in because I can.

I love quotes, I love higher education, I love technology, I love puzzles, and when I can utilize those four loves I am at my peak performance.

This is a blog that may leave you inspired, confused, wanting to know more, or it may entertain you or possibly enrage you while enlightening you as well.

I am a catalyst. A spark. A reason for something changing. The cause of a momentum shift.

There is a lot of can be and a lot I strive to eventually be. In the meantime I’ll be watching, observing, contributing, drafting, and scheming plans, ideas, the future.

Enjoy the blog and I look forward to reading your comments/suggestions/opinions/thoughts/rants/encouragement.

Rock on.

    Dear Ms. Ginese,

    I really appreciate your collection of information for teachers on the The Curious Commuter

    One thing I have found invaluable in my journey to learning more about education is the PLN (Professional Learning Network) available to every teacher on Twitter. They have a lot of conversations on different topics every week and it is great to listen in and participate.

    There are a few other conversations that I have found helpful as well for different areas of education so I made a widget that would combine them all, http://www.guidetoonlineschools.com/online-teaching/widgets. It would be a useful widget to post on your page so you and your readers can view up-to-the-second conversations that teachers are having without needing to leave your website.

    I tried to make it as easy as possible to install the widget. You just copy the code from right below the widget and paste it onto your website. Let me know if you have any issues with the installation or feedback on the widget.
