Tell Us A Little About Yourself or Your Work In School Improvement
It's hard for me to believe I have been in education for 42 years! It's been a great ride. I began as an elementary classroom teacher (the best experience in my career), and have been a reading teacher; a high school Title I teacher; Title I, Reading Recovery (best training I ever had), and elementary NCLB coordinator before retiring after 30 years. I then worked a variety of consulting jobs, including working for the Mid-Atlantic Comprehensive Center (MACC). It was there I met Sam Redding and Maureen Mirabito and learned about Indistar. I worked with Maureen and Rachel Grunder on Indicators in Action. How lucky am I to now be one of the Shepherds helping my states implement Indistar and make a significant contribution to the education of their students.
