Greetings everyone! All children can learn. It is our responsibility to figure out how. This mantra has guided me in my nearly three decades of serving high-needs students, schools, and school districts. My experiences include being a mathematics teacher, teacher leader and evaluator, school administrator, instructional coach, and school improvement consultant. I love to learn new things and enjoy biking, hiking, and traveling.
