Hi, I'm Krissy Venosdale. This website is my little corner of the internet where I share my passion for teaching and learning. Named because I'm inspired by the people I connect with and the kids I've learned from, Venosdale + Inspired = Venspired. I've taught gifted education for 11 years where I developed my love of technology integration, STEAM, PBL, and authentic learning. The world is an awesome place, and we just need to connect kids to it with enthusiasm. I'm a forever learning, connected collaborating, Sharpie collecting, poster making, eternal optimist. I still wish on stars and consider creativity one of life's basic needs... just like breathing.
