As a Professional Development Provider & Presenter, I implement meaningful and relevant professional development for faculty and staff guiding them in becoming master teachers.  Additionally, I create meaningful programs for student engagement and improvement, as well as, teacher growth.  My desire is to serve education on a larger scale by working as an Instructional/Technology Coach.  I bring a diverse package of experiential knowledge to the educational arena, with a humble servant's heart for sharing.
