All students thrive as lifelong learners and global citizens prepared for the futures they create.
 
 My Personal Why?

I believe that ALL students deserve the opportunity to learn and succeed in school. That they are given  the tools and support they need in order to be successful in life. That all students are given the chance to take ownership of their learning so they can see the value and meaning in their education.


I am learning coach, because I want to support, coach, and encourage teachers in their content knowledge, best practices, and future-ready skills, which prepares their students for the futures they create.
