Some of the Values that Shape My Work

What we want for our students we should want for ourselves: unlimited learning opportunities that inspire inquiry and reflection in a collaborative and supportive environment. I care deeply about nurturing the intellect of teachers. My goal as a teacher is to foster independent, reflective learners and to support them in making sound judgments about their craft.

Work with Families, Children, Schools, and Communities

I taught fifth grade through high school in public schools for over 25 years. I taught history at the high school level, English and mathematics in the middle school grades, and all subjects in the upper elementary grades. Later I was a math specialist for elementary school teachers.

Recent Professional Contributions

I am currently immersed in facilitating action research with teachers in Bank Street's School for Children. I also presented a paper at the 2014 American Educational Research Association (AERA) Conference focused on constructivist online education. I continue to work with teachers and coaches throughout the country on deepening their mathematics content knowledge and advancing their pedagogy.
