I am so blessed to serve this amazing school district as Director of Instructional Design and Elementary ELA. There is no greater joy than to be in service of high levels of learning for every student, every day with a highly collaborative and learner-centered district!
Almost twenty years ago, I began my career as an elementary classroom literacy teacher. Throughout my journey as an educator, I have had the opportunity to help students and teams as a literacy specialist, instructional coach, Title I program coordinator and administrator. My passion for leading campuses through the process of collaboration for school improvement has also led me to work nationally as a member of the presenting faculty at Solution Tree and First Educational Resources. It is an incredible honor to now bring my love of all things learning to this new role.
As Director of Instructional Design, I support our Curriculum and Instruction department and all Tomball ISD campuses in designing and implementing instructional practices that ensure ALL students are learning at high levels through the tenets of the professional learning communities process. Additionally, I serve our elementary campuses as Director of Elementary ELA and facilitate the work of our team of literacy specialists and incredible ELA teachers as they build a strong foundation for learning through the balanced literacy approach.
Carolyn Dweck stated, "...It becomes a basic human right for all children to live in places that create growth, to live in places filled with YET." I am in relentless pursuit of making that statement a reality for all of the students I serve.
