TEACHING EXPERIENCE

In my ten years as an educator, I have worked in various roles including classroom teacher, instructional coach, and teacher-consultant for program and curriculum leadership. I have been very fortunate to engage in a great deal of professional learning around effective classroom instruction, assessment and evaluation, student voice, and creating communities of learners in the classroom. The materials I sell in my store are mostly in software platforms that allow my customers to modify and customize the file for their students.
