I envision an educational system that fills the time of teachers and learners with meaningful tasks instead of unending high-stakes tests. I want to help rewrite the landscape of education to include engaged, integrative learning and high impact practices for lifelong learning. I am also committed to co-mentoring as the most important form of collaborative scholarship.  I learn and grow from, with, and through my colleagues at every stage of our careers.

I’m a change agent. 

I can support your learning.


I believe in the power of portfolio thinking to help learners make connections among elements of curricular and co-curricular learning, to provide authentic assessment of learning, and to document learning and professional identity.



I support my colleagues as a co-mentor committed to consulting and workshopping on all matters related to teaching, learning, professional development, and the tenure, promotion, & merit process.



As an experienced program administrator, I provide guidance to and collaborate with aspiring, new, and veteran administrators to create and maintain engaging programs to inspire student learning.
