TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was a middle school science teacher for ten years. During that time, I also served as our school's department chair, and was our building's union representative. I then moved into a regional science role, serving upwards of sixty districts around curriculum design and professional development in science. Currently, I am the assistant director of curriculum and instruction for PNW BOCES, one of New York State's regional education service agencies. In that role I work with teachers and administrators in the northern suburbs of New York City to design curriculum, explore professional learning, and work on district and statewide initiatives.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a teacher (and now as a regional leader), I attempt to be people-first. A great mentor of mine shared a mantra, "It's all about the relationships" and I've tried to live by that since he first said that to me during my initial year of teaching. I was a proponent of humor in the classroom, and realized early that respect could be earned through laughter. I consider myself someone who isn't afraid to take risks, and while much of what I did in the classroom didn't always work out, it taught me much about being a successful (sometimes) learner and leader!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I wrote grants that earned twenty-five thousand dollars in science equipment for our school building, designed an innovative science literacy project that was profiled in one of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) journals, presented at regional and national conferences, primarily for NSTA, and wrote for NSTA about my story assessments, and personalized lab reporting experiences. Recently, I was selected as one of ASCD's emerging leaders, have presented at ASCD conferences, write regularly for ASCD and Smartbrief, and in 2016 wrote a book on rethinking professional development for ASCD.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated in 2001 from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education (with a science speciality). I have a Master of Science in Education degree from Pace University in Educational Technology, and a second Master of Science in Education degree from Fordham University in School Leadership and Administration.
