I have 15 years of experience in K-12 education and have developed ELA, ELD, and Social Studies curricula for major publishers, including student editions, teacher guides, and standardized assessments (PARCC, NGR, STAAR). I also teach at home using the Wilson Reading System.
I enjoy teaching students about the concept of multiple intelligences and often emphasize that every person has enormous value that can't be measured by academic assessments. I think building confidence and encouraging students to try difficult things is one of the most important roles of a teacher.

I am married with four children--now grown--and one child at home. I work at home part-time developing curricula and assessments and also homeschool a dyslexic child using the classical education model.
