I am an Instructional Coach for beginning teachers and hold certifications in English Language Arts, Music Education, and Academically and Intellectually Gifted Education. I serve as lead mentor for the beginning teacher program and have led school and county wide professional development. I provide professional development sessions at school, county, and statewide levels.
I believe in student centered learning. The teacher's job is to meet students where they are and enable those students to reach their highest potential. Although teaching is very serious business, I believe that a classroom should be a warm and inviting place where students feel empowered to try, fail, and succeed in order to guarantee a future of life long learning.
I have received the school Teacher of the Year award and the County Impact in Education award.
I hold a BS in Music Education, an MME in Music Education and certifications in English Language Arts, Academically and Intellectually Gifted, and Teaching Online.
