I have been working on trying to bring change to the world of education since I began my pre-service teaching experiences in college over twenty years ago. I have worked at all levels of private and public school. I have taught at the college level and have focused my work primarily on learners who require additional supports than what are traditionally offered by public schools. I have presented around the country and internationally. I provide workshops to school districts across the United States and create instructional content for my own classes as well as for larger organizations.
It is my hope that this site will serve as a resource for students, parents, educators and districts who are looking for areas of improvement across the educational system. I will provide suggestions about how to implement changes in your districts in ways that help students learn better and make schools more efficient. I will continue to document the important issues necessary for improving that system with regular updates.
My areas of expertise and focus are related to:
- School Climate
- Student Anxiety
- Curriculum Development
- College/Career Readiness
- Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Source Software
- Copyright/Fair Use in Education
- Special Education Modifications, Adaptations, Services
- Blended/Online Learning
- Student and Parent Rights
