Professional Summary

As a seasoned educator, my passion is working with teachers so they can achieve success for themselves and their students. My specialties are curriculum and instruction, technology integration, developing resources, coaching teachers and instructional design.

  • I am skilled at seeing the big picture and helping line up the details to move forward together.
  • I believe that building teacher capacity is a cornerstone to student achievement.
  • Two keys to student success are inquiry and scaffolding.

Over the past 10 years as an independent education consultant, I have had the opportunity to work in classrooms across the nation to implement innovative strategies and build teacher capacity. I value the perspective provided by these experiences.
