I'm super geeked about education. It's what lights me up. I want to connect you with all the education ideas and teacherly things that light you up too!
I am a coach specializing in responsive education and systemic change. I have been in education for more than 20 years and have taught in a variety of settings as an English teacher-urban, suburban, private, alternative, mainstream, and even international. My geeky passion for teaching led me to coaching and consulting. I provide educational coaching, team support, and professional development for a number of schools in several districts around Minnesota, bridging the gap between practice and outcomes in a variety of settings: rural and urban, public and charter.
My mission is to help schools and educators create student-centered learning environments that are inclusive, equitable, and demographically unpredictable.
In my work, my central question is always, “How is this good for kids?”
