A veteran educator of 22 years, I am proud to say that I was an elementary school teacher and Reading Specialist for the majority of my career. As a Digital Learning Specialist for Literacy, I coordinate and implement Instructional Technology Initiatives district-wide.
My areas of expertise include literacy, research, early childhood education, culturally relevant pedagogy and curriculum design. I have presented both regionally and nation-wide on topics related to Literacy, Digital Tools, Early Childhood Education, and Educational Policy. I am also an Adjunct Faculty member at a university and teach graduate level Ed Policy and Research, Measurement, and Statistics coursework. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, travel, photography, reading and crafting.
