TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a leadership coach and educational consultant. I was a classroom teacher for ten years, a principal for eleven years, and a Director of Teaching and Learning for four years. I am also an author and adjunct college professor. You will typically find me coaching and offering support for teachers, principals, and other administrators or conducting professional learning in schools and conferences.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Classroom management is critical to success in teaching. It is essential to build relationships with students and be consistent in your routines and procedures. We need to embrace the 21st century skills, especially the 4 C's: creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. Teachers appreciate administrators who practice shared leadership and students thrive when they are guided to be self directed learners.
