I am a professional educator- practitioner based in Charlotte, NC. I hold a Master of Science in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment and a NC Professional Educators License in English Language Arts with a certification in AIG- Gifted Education. I have 20 + years secondary school classroom teaching experience and 10+ years School leadership experience. Any discussion of my personal philosophy or concept of learning must be entered into with the unmistakably clear understanding that, as an educator, I view myself as equal parts teacher and student. I see great value and validity in a plethora of both widely accepted and disputed learning theories. Having said that, my theory of education reflects a core value of my teaching and learning philosophy: Education must bring about transformation between what is 'learned' and what is 'lived' and develop the necessary connection between the two. I believe there are many paths to the one.

I love being out in all forms of nature i.e., kayaking, hiking, camping. I enjoy travelling. I am an avid reader. As an English teacher teach literature and the Classics; but I prefer to read nonfiction in my leisure time. I love butterflies and I love the beach.
