Having worked as a teacher, instructional coach, curriculum writer, and faculty member at a graduate school of education, I know that education changes lives when teachers build and leverage relationships that open doors to unimaginable success. When I taught public school, the underlying goal of my instruction was to develop students into creative problem solvers and respectful global citizens. Now as a graduate school faculty member, I work to develop both current and future teachers into responsive diagnosticians who successfully meet the needs of ever diversifying classrooms and help students develop 21st Century skills.
I have developed an instructional style that leverages my skills and education in pedagogy, music, and diplomacy. Through dynamic and fast-paced teaching, I push students to think critically, collaborate openly, and problem solve calmly.
