Flipped Educator Spotlight (Interview): Stacey Roshan

For this installment of the Flipping Learning Network’s Educator Spotlight, I (Crystal Kirch) was able to chat with Stacey Roshan, a high school math teacher and Technology Coordinator at Bullis School in Maryland.

Stacey was one of the first #flipclass math teachers that I was able to connect with when I started flipping my own classes in the 2011-2012 school year.  I had the privilege of meeting her face to face at ISTE 2012, and have since been able to continue our connection virtually via Twitter and our respective blogs.  I appreciate Stacey’s purposeful approach to flipping her instruction, and her constant push to find more effective and engaging ways for her students to communicate their thinking. 

Stacey has so much experience with flipping a variety of classes, from AP Calculus to Honors Algebra 2, and now even to an online course.  I am confident that no matter your subject area, Stacey’s experiences will give you insight that will enhance your flipped classes.

In this interview, we explore these questions (in fact, if you open the video on YouTube and click “Show More” below the video to see the full video description, we’ve included handy ‘time tags’ for each of these questions, and you can use these to jump to that part of the interview): 

  • How did you get started with flipped learning?
  • As you’ve progressed with flipped learning, how has your practice evolved?
  • Adopting your approach for different students and different classes
  • How do you gather feedback from your students?
  • What have been your biggest challenges or obstacles with flipped teaching and learning?
  • Talk to us about how you use class time
  • What’s next for you (discussion of online teaching and ways that students can in any type of class can help each other with interactive online tools)?
  • If you had one “nugget” of advice for someone just starting out, what would that be?
  • Where can people find you online? 

For your reference, some tools Stacey mentions are:
