Thirty years serving multiple roles in public education. Textbook content contributor for several major textbook companies and Differentiation "Enrichment" Consultant for several school districts.


After spending thirty years as a public educator, I am currently a "Differentiation Enrichment Consultant" in which I work with districts adding enrichment materials to their curriculum and I work for a local university supervising student teachers as a field representative.

My teaching experience includes several years as a classroom teacher in Iowa, Nebraska and Texas in 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grade. As well I have had the honor of serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing and Data Coach and several years as a Gifted Specialist.

I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years as well as a presenter in which I trained educators to use several different reading and math curriculum. Inadvertently, this experience provoked a realization that there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher preparation and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of the curriculum standards.

The resources I offer are "print and go" and ready to use in your classroom. They provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even the brightest of learners.

I am passionate about many things, especially writing educational resources that will encourage students to love to learn. When I'm not working, I relish the time I spend with my family and I enjoy traveling, yoga, hiking and meeting new people wherever I go.
