    Ginger Lewman

    Edupreneur, Co-creator of Lifepractice PBL Model, Consultant, Technology Integration Specialist, and Google Certified Teacher

    Ginger Lewman is national consultant and keynote speaker with ESSDACK, a non-profit education service center. She inspires and helps all levels of educators figure out the ins and outs of Project/Problem Based Learning, technology integration, along with working with gifted and high-ability learners. Ginger is passionate about helping educators rethink and revision what teaching and learning can be in today’s world. There is nothing better than watching the faces of educators as they watch their own students get excited about learning and doing things that they never thought were possible. Because of her background as a learner, teacher, and school leader, she knows exactly what that feels like to begin this journey. Ginger believes that, “It is the most awesome thing in the world…because in that moment, everything is possible and we want to do it again.” As an educator, Ginger sees herself as a resource, not THE source.
