Biography I am a passionate educator committed to improving the education system for all students. I strongly believe social emotional learning and personalized pathways are the foundation for success in the classroom. I strive to discover innovative approaches that focus on equity and access to grow the whole child. My experiences teaching diverse, gifted and talented and low-income populations ignited my passion and remain the focus of my work. I continue to seek opportunities to create change to ensure all students feel connected and are given the opportunity to grow to their potential.
