If you're not currently teaching, what are you focused on?:
Teacher Professional Development
I am Director of Empower Lifelong Learning, Project CRISS and live in beautiful northwest Montana. My teaching career includes English Language Arts, Social Studies, Reading, and Alternative Ed in grades 6-12 and well as being a School Improvement Specialist and the Teaching and Learning Specialist at a small Project Based Learning/technology school funded by a Gates Foundation Small Schools Grant. I'm passionate about effective instruction, a focus on literacy teaching and learning across grades and content areas, and student-driven learning in all its forms.
