Hello and welcome!
I am the English Language Coordinator and Instructional Coach. My role is to help provide instructional leadership, ELD program management, and Assessment for English language development at STEM Launch. I also work as an instructional coach for grades K, 1, 5th ELA/Social Studies, and 7th ELA where I collaborate with teams to increase student engagement, improve student achievement, and build teacher capacity though our STEM model and problem-based learning.
This is my 16th year in education. I have worked locally in Denver for most of my career, but have also spent 3 years teaching abroad in France and Benin, West Africa. I hold a BA in English, a MA in Educational Psychology, and a MA in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education. I am married and we have a 2 year old and a 6 year old. We enjoy spending our weekends in the mountains playing in the snow, skiing, or snuggling up watching movies.
