Who are you?

My main pursuits during the 1970s and 1980s were playing and coaching competitive soccer.

I worked in public recreation for 14 years, then found my true calling as an elementary teacher.

I’ve published seven articles and a book in the past 6 years.

Edjacent Why Statement

My three decades as a public school teacher and administrator were personally and professionally rewarding; however, I want to do more. I’d like to see real changes in K-12 education. My reasons for joining Edjacent were to help educators better themselves and improve their practice, advocate for change in education, and be part of a “club” of innovative and dedicated educators.
