I started my career as a teacher at middle school and then a high school charter school. I was then an instructional coach at the elementary level. In the coaching position, I loved the opportunity to receive on-going professional learning with the responsibility to share it with others. I then became a middle school Guidance and Learning Advisor where I was able to continue in a role of professional development as well as work directly with students. Currently, I am a high school counselor. I am involved in academics mostly through the role of coordinating student study team and 504 meetings. The passion for the development of this course came from my role as a counselor and as a mother of a student who has recently been identified as having Executive Function deficits that are impacting learning and I wanted to help provide support for the families, teachers, and students I serve as well as my own.
