I have worked in public education for almost three decades. My experience includes teaching at the elementary and middle school levels, district level administration for curriculum, instruction, and after-school programs, and high school administration. During my 17 years as a high school principal I have worked in districts that were rural economically disadvantaged as well as affluent suburban. My passion continues to be providing equity of opportunity for ALL students. I believe strongly in restorative practices, student voice, and the importance of understanding how instructional practices impact actual learning.
