"The true value of a teacher is determined not by what he know, nor by his ability to impart what he knows, but by his ability to stimulate in others a desire to know." 


I am thrilled to begin my new adventure as Johnston's first Elementary Curriculum Implementation Coordinator. As part of my role I will also serve as an induction coach. My job will be to assist first year teachers with understanding content, practices and school culture. In addition I will be responsible for communicating and developing curriculum updates in mathematics and English Language Arts. My role will include all elementary grades from kindergarten to fifth grade.


I designed this website as a resource for teachers in the district. I know firsthand how demanding our role as educators can be and hope that we can work together to continue making Johnston's elementary schools a community of productive, engaging learners.
