Tell Us A Little About Yourself or Your Work In School Improvement
I am a trained secondary English teacher and a certified administrator with lots of experience working with teams at the school, district, and state levels to identify and implement practical and creative ways to use resources, grow and find talent, and implement instructional practices to improve teaching and learning. I have worked in NYS at a regional BOCES developing programs from scratch for teachers and students in rural communities with scarce resources but plenty of grit; I served as the Manager of School Achievement and Policy for the Superintendent of the Howard County Public Schools in Maryland; I was an specialist at the Maryland State Department of Education building a statewide improvement planning and service delivery program for all schools; and as a consultant there, was the architect of Maryland's innovative statewide system of support, The Breakthrough Center. I live in Maryland with my husband and four small children and love working with Sam Redding and his dedicated staff to find ways to make a real difference in how school operate, instruct, and how student learn.
