My Philosophy

Math = Joy
All students, teachers, leaders, families, and community members should experience math as joyful. In my work with schools, I believe all students can learn math and deserve engaging and relevant experiences. 
Inspired Mathematics is about providing professional development that will help accomplish this goal. This professional development will be structured around grounded concepts within a progression, discussion, and assessment for learning. Enriching experiences with opportunities to practice, make connections, and reflect will guide teachers to a deeper understanding of the math concepts they teach to their students.

About Me

My experience as a classroom teacher, instructional coach, math specialist, and consultant has inspired me to empower the most influential element of the classroom, the teacher.

I believe in maintaining a positive mindset, creating partnerships with a sustained purpose, aligning needs with best practices, and striving for significant outcomes.

When you work with me, you should expect a collaboration with transparency and consistency. You also should expect follow-through and follow-up to ensure your educational needs are addressed.
