I have worked for the public school system since 1998 as a classroom teacher, special education teacher, Instructional Consultation Team Facilitator, and intervention specialist. In 2004, I earned National Board Certification in the area of Middle Childhood Generalist. As a professional development specialist, I have enhanced and improved the mentoring and induction program, including refining mentoring training, codeveloping a team-based approach to supporting novice educators, and developing online learning experiences. In addition to working full time, I also serve as the editor for Learning Forward Virginia's new online journal, Voices for Professional Learning. My vitae and list of presentations and publications can be found on my academia.com website.
