In April 2021, I launched A to Z Education Consulting as a way to expand my ability to contribute to solving education challenges and upgrading the educational experiences of children and families.
My focus and passion is on principal coaching and development. With strong principals at the helm of our schools, the future is bright! But the job is big and exhausting and complex and challenging and draining ... and many strong leaders don't stay in the role long enough to impact positive change. That needs to change! We must support our school leaders and grow their skill set to meet the many, wide ranging demands required of them.
What makes me qualified to help grow our leaders? Well, to start I have served as a school principal for 11 years in 4 very different schools ranging from high poverty to affluent, public to contract/charter, military, suburban and urban. In addition, in 2014 I became an Adjunct Professor in the Education Administration department at McDaniel College and have consistently taught Ed Leadership courses and overseen over 30 admin interns as they completed their admin internships. It is my life's work, my passion.
However, it stems from a passion for education and ensuring that children get the best foundation possible to provide them unlimited options for future success. I have a strong belief that our work encompasses academic, social, and societal aspects. We must partner with families to help children succeed. We must meet children where they are and support all their needs. We must constantly innovate and seek new and better ways to accomplish our work. We must stay current and relevant, tapping into new technologies, best practice, and research to ensure we are providing the best resources and supports possible.
My experiences over the past two decades include:
Field Manager for Discovery Education
Middle School Math Teacher and Department Chair
Elementary School Teacher, eCoach, AfterSchool Title 1 Coordinator
I am very excited to connect with you and to support your education needs in anyway possible!
Passionate about ALL things education. Focused on school improvement and leadership development. With 20 years experience, over a decade as a school principal, and also a Senior Adjunct Professor at a School of Education, I am committed to supporting schools, school leaders, innovation, and growth that enhances the educational experiences provided to students and families.
