I am the Teaching and Learning Coach for Innovation Academy, Early College Academy, and Career and Technical Leadership Academy High School. As a coach, my role is to support educators in achieving their professional goals by offering feedback, guidance, and training. My goal is to foster personalized and effective instructional change as I advocate for teachers taking risks to improve student learning.
This is my 11th year in education. I began my career in my home state of Idaho where I taught high school French and coached tennis. After moving to North Carolina in 2013, I continued to teach French in Wake County at the middle and high school levels within the IB Programme. While teaching, I challenged my students to not only acquire a new language, but also to expand their worldview, make global connections, and use critical thinking skills while linking other disciplines and using interpersonal skills within out course of study. Last year, I served as the Teaching and Learning Coach at Corinth Holders High School, and I am excited to join the team at all of my assigned schools this year!
My hobbies and interests include domestic travel, international travel, attending local events, being outdoors, cooking, and spending time with my family and cats.
