Within my role in Albemarle County Public Schools (a 26-school district in Charlottesville, VA), I learn in order to lead learning. As my primary responsibilities, I serve alongside our division's instructional coaches to design reflective learning opportunities that help teachers actualize their professional goals, while also supporting our K-12 teachers who are helping students learn science.
A graduate of University of Virginia's Curry School of Education, I started my career as lead learner (i.e. teacher) in a high school physics classroom, and strive to promote learning within every organization I join. I have recently begun to focus on leadership development and the role of learning in leading, honing those practices as a member of the community of learners in Albemarle as well as the board of directors of Fluvanna County's SPCA.
I enjoy sharing what I learn with others, having recently been published in ASCD's Educational Leadership, AVID's Adventures in College and Career Readiness and ACPS' Leadership blog (as well as my personal blog and Twitter account).
