I am an educational consultant ready to help support your unique professional learning needs and goals.
As a passionate educator with 15 years of experience in the classroom, I have been providing consulting services to schools for 10 years now. I am currently the Director of Technology and Innovation at a Pre-K though Grade 8 Independent School in Northern Virginia, but I intentionally carve out time to work with other teachers and school leaders to broaden my impact in the field of education.
As an innovator in education, I have sought out highly competitive professional development experiences for myself. Because of this, I am a Google for Education Certified Innovator, a Google for Education Certified Trainer, an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Siemens STEM Institute Fellow, an ATLIS Leadership Institute Fellow, an AISGW Emerging Leader, and a National Board Certified Teacher in Technology Education.
I recently wrote and self-published an award-winning book titled, Knowledge-ABLE: Igniting a New Generation of Lifelong Learners. My aim with this book is to offer a unique set of ideas that teachers and administrators can hopefully use to help students become better learners in this rapidly-changing world that we live in today. You can learn more about my book by visiting the Book page on this website.
You can find my book on Amazon at www.amazon.com/dp/B0BQ9R681J.
I graduated from James Madison University with a B.S. and a M.A.T., and graduated from Virginia Tech with an Ed.S. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. My background is in middle education with a focus in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) instruction and content knowledge. This allows me to adapt my services to many different grade levels and subject areas.
While I offer many professional development services, I specialize in inquiry-based learning instruction, innovative technology practices, and highly effective leadership strategies.
Over the course of my career in education, I have taught in both public and independent schools, as well as in higher education as an adjunct professor for a graduate-level course. I have been an administrator at my current school for nine years and I continue to find new ways to build capacity in my colleagues. My mission as a leader is to positively influence different stakeholders to help students construct the knowledge and skills they will need to become lifelong learners, and creative problem solvers in our global society.
