I am a passionate parent and educator who focuses on the links between school and home. As my own children progressed through elementary school, I noticed the acheivement gaps that grew when kids could not retain their skills when outside of school on breaks or summer vacation. The "slide" or "brain drain" that occurs away from school sets kids back way too much and is preventable. I focus on creating materials that children and families can accomplish at home and that will keep them on a path of academic success at school!
I believe that in strengthening the links between home and school so that we can make progress in closing the achievement gap. I involve parents on a consistent basis, both to educate them on their students educational needs, as well as to promote a culture of learning outside of school.
