My Experience

With a focus to increase the rate and quality of learning for school leaders, I come with an in-depth experience of collaboratively coaching and building learning communities with educational leaders in order for them to increase the rate and quality of teacher and student learning. Bringing processes and research to help leaders anew the excitement of learning through inquiry, reflection, and action is my purpose in working in this field - my aim is to do this in dynamic and exciting ways.
