Details for your reading pleasure:
My family will tell you that I started my teaching career at a young age and with stuffed animals as my pupils. :) I spent eight years teaching middle school - mostly Social Studies, but also Science and Math. (My endorsement is in Reading, so there you have it!) Those eight years were the most fun, fabulous learning experiences with students! During my sixth year of teaching, I was selected to pilot technology with a group of students. These students created the most amazing products and totally rocked my teaching world. When my campus went 1:1 with devices, I also decided to pursue a Masters in Educational Leadership. The Master's journey led me to combine a love for curriculum with technology, and I transferred to a Future-Ready instructional coach position. I was very blessed to spend 2 years working with so many amazing teachers who also wanted their classrooms transformed with student-centered lesson design. I have been at the Education Service Center since April 2015, and love every single day of serving educators in Region 11.
