I love to empower students to overcome obstacles and achieve success.
I am excited to be a new member of the Tarrant Family. I am proud to serve as Tarrant High Interventionist. It is a great day to be a Wildcats! As a Veteran Instructional Leader, I am adept in literacy curriculum, program development, student achievement, career preparedness, social and emotional learning, goal setting. I am a passionate and results-oriented Instructional Leader with 25 years of experience in education. Over the last 15 years, I have served as a Certified Alabama Reading Initiative Reading Coach, Curriculum Coach, AVID Site Coordinator, GEAR-UP Area Facilitator, Certified Advanced Placement English Teacher, Mentor to Teach for America teachers and novice teachers. I utilize best practices to encourage student success through engaging, rigorous, student-centered learning environments. Best practices allow teachers to shift to a coaching model of interaction. They engage students in high-level questioning and responding through the use of active learning strategies.
Lastly, “Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” – John Wooden. I understand the importance of building relationships, collaboration, and teamwork. Let me help you be successful. Together we can focus on progress, not perfection.
