About this Speaker
An award-winning educator with more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Blades is a highly-sought consultant and instructional leader who thrives on empowering and advocating for teachers. In addition to being a classroom teacher for 16 years, Dr. Blades has also developed and managed national STEM enrichment programs, written curricula and assessments for some of the education’s top publishers, and has spoken at several national & international conferences.
Dr. Blades has an inherent ability to spot gaps and develop creative solutions to fill them. This led to the creation of the POWARRful Teaching Strategies® framework to help students build their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, based on both doctoral research and recurring themes in her own teaching practices. Since releasing POWARRFUL Teaching Strategies® in 2018, Dr. Blades has shared the framework with thousands of educators across the US, giving them the tools and confidence they need to build more student-centered classrooms.
