Day to Day

I am in constant communication with teachers, administrators, technicians, and curriculum publishers. I spend my day on the computer creating plans for implementation and training. I use resources from the many contacts I have built relationships with to carry out my job. I also have the opportunity to visit our schools and observe classrooms, meeting and having dialogue with teachers about what is working in their classrooms.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

They need to know that they want to form relationships with students that will inspire them to be their best version of themselves. The education will give you the tools to teach and lead in the school. The most important part of being an educator is not what you learn in school, it is what is in your heart. My career has led me to be a teacher, assistant principal, principal and now director. The more I learn, the better I can do my job. However, my focus is always what is best for kids!
