I am a former teacher who is now a full-time author, educational consultant, and instructional coach. I work with schools and districts around the country, helping to sustain curriculum-mapping initiatives and immersion in instructional technology. I specialize in the integration of research-based instructional strategies to facilitate transformations of curriculum design, instructional practice, and professional collaboration, currently around 21st Century Fluencies, Common Core integration, and all that modern learning entails.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Master’s in English Education. I also hold post-baccalaureate certificates in teaching science and language arts, as well as gifted students. I have taught a variety of grade levels and content areas over the years, primarily with Middle Schools.
I am an Independent Consultant for both public and private schools, as well as ASCD, Eduplanet21, the Curriculum 21 project, and Solution Tree. I'm also an active blogger who writes often for the Curriculum 21 blog (curriculum21.com/blog) and ASCD's Edge Social Network (http://edge.ascd.org). I most recently published Digital Learning Strategies: How do I assign and assess 21st Century Work? You can find me on TWITTER, the Curriculum 21 NING, ASCD EDGE, and FACEBOOK.
