Stay relevant. Stay engaged. Stay positive.

I am the Chief Academic Officer for the Collingswood-Oaklyn Public School District (NJ). Though I am responsible for curriculum, instruction, and professional development in our eight buildings, K-12, my passion is working with teachers to improve their practice and to support student achievement. I am a former high school English teacher (Audubon, NJ), an EdCamp supporter and organizer, a growth mindset fanatic, and a baseball junkie.
