Over 15 years of experience in education, to include 8 years in the classroom. I also have experience teaching at the university level and administering programs at the school, district, and state level. As a state-level leader, I know what teacher evaluation systems look for and I have the skills to help teachers improve their craft to go from "ordinary" to "extraordinary!"
