I am an engaging, interactive teacher who clearly introduces new information, models new skills, offers guided skill practice, and provides positive feedback as students independently practice and master skills.  I incorporate the creative arts into instructional experiences to teach new concepts.  I provide hands-on experiences that appeal to students’ unique learning styles.  I encourage discussion and offer opportunities for students to share their experiences and expertise with one another. 

My doctoral degree is in education. My teaching certifications include elementary education (K-8) as well as secondary (grades 7-12) communication arts, English, speech and theater, and science education. I have more than 30 years of teaching experience in traditional and online classrooms in rural, urban, and suburban schools.  As a student teaching supervisor, I equipped new teachers with creative interactive strategies I use as an instructor.

As a TED speaker, seasoned teacher, school assembly presenter, and mental health advocate, I equip youth and adults with skills to talk about tough topics like mental illness, bullying, substance abuse, and suicide prevention at school assemblies and conferences throughout the country.  I teach communication skills that help youth and adults strengthen relationships, set appropriate boundaries, and resolve conflict.  

I empower youth with goal-setting strategies and peer leadership coaching. I equip teens and youth leadership teams with skills and tools to create powerful action plans with attainable goals.  I am the author of an award-winning personal goal-setting book, Dreams to Action Trailblazer's Guide. Visit for more information.
Students will complete a book report organizer in class.  They will use this information gathered in Day 1 of the first class to begin writing a book report in Day 2 of the second class.  Students will finish the book report for homework.
