About Me

I'm a dedicated, passionate education leader with a broad range of leadership and communication experience in multiple associations and a track record of leading teachers to significant gains in student achievement. My leadership education includes the Aspiring Principals Program and Emerging Leaders program of New Leaders and the Aspiring Turnaround Principals Institute run through the Maryland State Department of Education, and I have presented extensively at local, regional, and national conferences. I also consult on education topics including innovative instructional methods and mathematics pedagogy.
