I am an experienced teacher, principal and curriculum coordinator in Columbus, Ohio. My experience is primarily working in high-need schools where student engagement and literacy are a great need. To compensate, I have worked to create math projects and activities that are both mathematically rigorous and engaging the students. In my experience I often felt the concepts were lost when I taught other activities that were meant to engage. The foundational of my work is a hefty dose of mathematical rigor. In addition to teaching, I also have served as an assistant high school principal, an elementary school principal and a K-12 curriculum coordinator.
Student engagement by any means necessary. I have been selected as a founding teacher at both an innovative STEM high school and an International High School. Both experiences promoted cross-curricular collaboration, project-based and inquiry learning.
