There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing that “aha” moment in a student’s face. My approach has always been to employ every learning strategy and modality to get there. As an Instructional Coach I am honored to support teachers in their classrooms to achieve that moment for their students.
My educational path includes teaching grades 3-10 in various settings and systems. It was an honor to serve as an administrator in the elementary and middle school settings. I obtained my bachelor’s in Industrial Psychology from Loma Linda University and a Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of LaVerne. My husband Matt and I live in the Los Angeles area with our fur babies, Sunny and Hobbes. In our spare time we love camping, gardening, DIY projects and spending time with family.
I love being an educator. During my 17 years in education I have served in many capacities, such as general education teacher, instructional coach, state instructional/behavior coach, and consultant. My favorite part of being an educator is working with other educators to improve learning outcomes for students. I received my Bachelors of Science Degree from Weber State University with a major in Elementary Education and a Minor in Early Childhood Education in 1996. I received my Masters Degree at the University of Utah in 2013 through the Educational Leadership and Policy program. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family to new places to experience the world around me. My husband and I live in Marin County, California with our three kids and dog.
For the love of empowering teachers through meaningful professional development and collaborative coaching to consistently provide the most effective differentiated instruction that supports complex thinking.
