As a professional educator, I enjoy engaging with learners to help them successfully maximize their knowledge and retention. I believe that everyone can learn and develop their skills given a proven instructional design and engaging courses. I am a certified educator, qualified to teach International Baccalaureate classes, hold a master’s degree in education, and have 25 years of experience. Along with classroom instruction, I have worked on curriculum development and aligning instruction to state, national, and international standards where appropriate. Outside of education, I have enjoyed developing a yoga practice that has kept me grounded and centered for the last 12 years. I also enjoy life with rescue dogs and gardening.
