TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Classroom teacher for 15 years, most recently as an IB PYP teacher of fifth grade students. IB PYP Coordinator in California and Maryland for eight years. Previously I was a museum educator and Curator of Education at a museum in Arizona.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Dynamic and eclectic! I'm what's called a "double-pointy-head" in some circles. That means I have a very linear 'Mr. Spock' approach coupled with just the opposite: an intuitive, creative 'Captain Kirk' mentality. Need something analyzed, organized, and laid out in a clear, functional way? I can do it. Need something tuned in, out-there, and fun, to boot? I can do that too. It's finding the balance to help teachers and students be engaged, proactive, successful learners that keeps me saying, "Engage, Number One. Take us to warp speed."
