It is my pleasure to offer my educational services by placing students first, and have developed expertise to ensure this fact. I earned my Doctorate of Educational Leadership from Argosy University, in 2014. In addition, I earned my School Administration and Supervision Certificate from Johns Hopkins University, and Masters of Science in Education and Bachelor of Arts from Central Connecticut State University. My current book entitled, “Attitudes of Teachers toward Professional Development: San Juan, Puerto Rico, Public School District II,” explores the significant differences in attitudes toward professional development among lower elementary, upper elementary, middle school, and secondary teachers in public schools. The question of open-mindedness, receptivity to new ideas, and the ability to impact positively academic performance are central to my educational beliefs. No matter the educational challenge from children to adults, I work side-by-side to towards eventual success.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Student achievement is a community effort by which an educational goal is treated holistically -- namely, education does not happen in an isolated classroom. I have always made it a point as a teacher, educational coach, and administrator to emphasize that a real learning community includes incorporating multiple approaches to ensure student academic success. This always meant tutoring individual students where applicable, incorporating technology as necessary, communicating with important figures in the students' life, learning new methodologies of instruction, and sharing best teaching practices.
