Who Is AskMsQ?

Sabba wants to live in a world driven by empathy.  In working with schools and organizations to redesign teaching and learning in a mobile-driven world, the greatest lesson she’s learned is that cultures of innovation begin with a culture of empathy. Empathy is critical to designing environments where people will thrive because when we begin with empathy, what we think is challenged by what we learn.  

Sabba’s experience in education spans across K-12 and higher education.  Her career began as a high school social science teacher and over the years she has led 1:1 device initiatives across K-12 and higher education institutions, notably Fairmont Private Schools and the University of Southern California.  In 2015 she was named an Apple Distinguished Educator.  

Sabba is a Global Executive Doctor of Education student at the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California.  A program focused on examining educational issues in a global context. Her research focus is on using design thinking to prepare people to thrive in The Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Sabba is a national and international presenter and has had the pleasure of speaking at conferences such as ISTE, SxSWEdu, ASCD, FETC, CUE and EdTechTeacher. 

When not talking about teaching and learning you can find Sabba flying her Mavic Pro drone, exploring coffee shops, interviewing people and traveling across the globe, all of which she captures across all social media platforms @AskMsQ.
