I specialize in designing curriculum and professional development tools and plans for teachers, parents, and school districts. We use a variety of teaching and research techniques to generate curriculum and create education programs It is extremely important for teachers and parents to learn about the school curriculum as it plays a key role in developing, implementing, assessing, modifying and shaping the school and the students development in the coming years. An evidenced-based curriculum acts as a road map for teachers and students to follow on the path to academic success. I'm also a seasoned educator and English literature is my passion and teaching has been a gift. I see my passion today as a requirement for my continued success. If you share the same passion in learning or teaching, contact me today. We are all students. Literacy is acquired and not to be taken for granted. I love what I do today.
