Personal Summary Statement
I am an educator on a mission to cultivate communities of learners and learning by connecting people, bringing shape to ideas, and seeking to understand. The accomplishments that fill me with the most pride all involve working with teams of teachers and administrators to design and implement initiatives around concept-centered curriculum, standards-based assessment, district-wide performance assessment, learner-centered ecosystems, and job-embedded instructional coaching. As a member of the ALP team, I look forward to partnering with brave district team members on their journey into the unknown, designing new and engaging landscapes for learning that make the most out of all of the resources available to us.
