Using my training and skills developed over the many years, I have worked with peers and instructors within school districts in raising the education community professional capacity. This has been an effort to build leadership, ownership, and a shared vision of change among school staff. I believe in bringing back new learning to the district as we move ahead in 21st Century Learning Skills and competency-based assessment.
As an educational community member, I draw upon my past experiences, including instruction and rehabilitation of emotionally, educationally and socially challenged students, and apply them to my current environment.
Being a part of the Leadership team at Bud Carlson Academy, as well as my ongoing education has allowed me to make strong inroads in helping create a versatile, well-supported and equipped teaching staff.
My goal is for students to engage in their own thinking on who they are, and who they want to become, and form their own unique conclusions about the community and their place in it. It is my goal to create a place where dialogue is conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect, where toleration of diverse opinions is paramount. I believe in active learning and use a variety of methods to encourage discussion and interaction. Student choice is important in order to encourage the expression of true learning, and thus, provides for a more accurate assessment.
