Summary

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR- Teacher, Administrator, Supervisor, Teaching Coach

Highly Regarded for building teachers through support, guidance, mentoring, and training.

As a professional educator, I have teaching, administrative, and staff support experience.  My teaching has included core subjects in self-contained 5th and 6th grade classrooms, college level Children's Literature class for elementary education majors, and children and adult Sunday School classes.  As assistant principal and as headmaster of a K-8 Michigan Public Charter School, I have experience with all aspects of school administration, staff development, discipline, communication, and parental involvement.  I have been a member and chair of committees for curriculum review and evaluation, school accreditation, and school improvement.  I understand and value teamwork as it brings individuals' ideas, resources, and talents together to help the whole be more successful.  My other experience includes director of an annual 6th grade camp -- staffing, planning, and overseeing the program.  I also developed, implemented, and oversaw a disaster preparedness plan for an elementary school.
