This is my 16th year in education and currently I work with PreK teachers to develop curriculum and professional development on play and inquiry based learning in all content areas. I have taught kindergarten through 8th grade throughout my teaching degree. I spent quite a few years as a Literacy Coach at an elementary school and then became a Curriculum Coordinator working with International Baccalaureate elementary and middle schools. Finally, I worked as a Curriculum Specialist to develop Common Core Curriculum district wide for grade Kindergarten through 5th grade.
My teaching style is to be the facilitator in the room and provide a combination of explicit and inquiry lessons to my students so they can become independent life long learners. My passion is inquiry based teaching and it is exciting to explore the world with students as I document their interests and curiosities to plan the next steps in our learning adventure.
