My life’s work has been to motivate educators and administrators to implement evidence-based practices toward achieving school readiness aimed at the academic achievement of young children enrolled in preschool through third grade (PreK-3). I have spent the last 20 years working directly with educators and administrators in Head Start, childcare and public school systems to improve quality in teaching practices and learning environments for young children. As a former Head Start Administrator and director of technical assistance, I have significant experience analyzing education policy and translating policy to practice. As an accomplished speaker and trainer working across multiple levels within early childhood education, I stand ready to customize a plan that will work for your teachers and education supervisors. My education background in developmental psychology and educational psychology has equipped me with critical knowledge and education research experience of which I can support you with customizing strategies aimed at improving teaching practices and outcomes for students. I am certified in Practice-Based Coaching, Time to Teach™, a classroom management strategy, and as a certified CLASS Infant, Toddler, and Pre-K observer.
