January 2014 - December 2014

I have over ten years of experience in a multitude of teaching and leadership positions. I believe that every student is capable of prospering, at all instructional levels, with proper encouragement and guidance from educators. To reflect 21st-century learning, students should be immersed in a technology-infused learning environment that allows them to comprehend and master the Common Core State Standards. It is the teacher’s job to ignite a passion and desire for learning, so that students can become life-long learners whom are college and career ready. I believe that teachers, as leaders, must positively influence students, families, administrators, and fellow teaching staff towards a common goal of students’ social/emotional and academic success.
