Teaching and learning have been the focus and passion of my career. From teaching middle school and high school and guiding professional curriculum in-services, I have gathered instructional strategies for teachable moments in the classroom. I want to provide teachers with relevant and timely instructional resources that can be applied in your classroom. I believe in seizing the time to share vibrant engaging lessons, scaffold learning, and creating learning experiences for your curricular content. My courses provide the opportunity to apply research-based, high-yield Instructional Strategies to Inspire Learning, a focus on the Achievement Gap: Teacher’s Role, and Essential Strategies to promote Achieving in English Language Arts. I look forward to working with you online.
