BIO OF MEMBER
To improve classroom instruction (including my own) by developing strong professional relationships, focused on trustful collaboration.
To identify the tools and habits of a great math teacher! To deconstruct teaching and define the elements that are the most effective in engaging students and helping them learn.
Why are you part of the Lead Data Team?
I enjoy being part of a diverse community and meeting people with different roles to share our experiences. It’s useful to always question what data is and how it’s used and being on the LDT allows us the time and space to do that.
EBP Action Research:
- RTI implementation and Support, 2017
- Authentic Inquiry Project
- 6 RTI workshops, 2017
- Cycle 1 Math workshop, 2017
What improvement model(s) is ESSB using?
What do you spend your learning time on?
Learning more about educational psychology (mindsets) and neuroscience. We’re not focused enough on the emotional aspects of learning and the impact of the mind/body connection on learning.
