In my role as Academic Instructional Coach I work collaboratively with Roosevelt’s teachers and leadership team to increase the quality and effectiveness of classroom instruction.
I have a profound respect for all those in the field of education committed to supporting students and doing what is needed to be continuous learners themselves. My coaching is centered around demonstrating that respect through engaging teachers in discussions within which they feel empowered to make decisions and pursue new methods or strategies in order to improve student outcomes. In this role, I am grateful to have the opportunity to support a group of incredibly committed teachers and learn side-by-side with them each day.
Feel free to ask me all about the impressive things teachers and students at Roosevelt High School are doing!
Biography: Born and raised in St. Louis, I attended the University of Missouri, St Louis as an undergrad where I received a Bachelor's degree in English and Secondary Education.
This is my 13th year as a Rough Rider! I taught English for 8 years prior to transitioning to my current role as instructional coach. Throughout that time, I also obtained a Master's Degree in counseling as well as my Ed.S. in school leadership. Most recently, I obtained a K-12 literacy specialist certification from The University of Missouri, St. Louis.
Other than that, I have two children who keep me busy and laughing. I love reading, gardening, hand-lettering, playing volleyball, traveling, and taking photographs. If you have any other questions about me, don't hesitate to reach out!
