I have 10+ classroom teaching experience in Secondary Mathematics, 8+ years in post-secondary online education for teacher training programs, 5+ years as an instructional coach, 3+ years in professional development for educators, 4+ years in standards and curriculum alignment, 7+ years in curriculum and assessment development.
My teaching style is as a facilitator of learning. Research tells us that students need to be active learners, the Common Core Standards promote students doing the learning rather than the teacher as the deliverer of information. My style fully supports these ideas and promotes the idea of students doing the work and the teacher facilitating the learning.

I am passionate about improving the quality of education for ALL students. There is no excuse for a student not to succeed. I work hard to let students know I care about them as a person and will give of myself in order to help them. As a result of this passion, I care deeply about improving current educator practice in all areas of instruction.
