TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started my career in education as a middle school ELA teacher. I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade reading and language arts, as well as a literature discussion course. Although I enjoyed teaching, I was more drawn to curriculum design. I left the classroom to pursue it full time. After almost 20 years in curriculum and instructional design, I still love what I do. I've created soup-to-nuts curricula, written workbook series, homeschool materials, teacher and student textbooks, IWB widgets and activities, assessment items, Common Core alignments, educational video games, and online interactive content. Every day brings an opportunity to learn something new about education. If we can combine rigorous and effective content with rapidly-advancing technology, there's no limit to what we can do for kids!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students should always know the "why" of what they're learning--why it's important, and how it can help them later in life. If they don't know why it would ever apply to them personally, there's no reason for them to invest the time to learn it. Skills taught in isolation aren't enough. Students need to see and understand the big picture.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Large projects are always a collaborative effort. I'm proud to say that projects to which I was a contributor have won the following awards: a Silver Medal Honors Award from the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) as a top book series for children in the elementary-aged category, and a CODiE Award for Best K-12 Course or Learning Management Solution.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a B.A. in Secondary English Education from the University of Maryland, and an M.S. in Professional Writing from Towson University.
