PROFESSIONAL ROLES

BIO

I began teaching in the New Orleans public schools as a high school reading teacher. I have taught all levels of students over more than a quarter of a century: at-risk, on-level, and gifted students. I have facilitated all content areas and taught science enrichment courses as part of the UGA Challenge Program through the Torrance Center of Creative Studies. I believe in empowering students as "real scientists" or "real writers" and in making learning exciting and helping students see interdisciplinary connections. I am currently Instructional Lead Teacher at Hilsman Middle School. 

EXPERTISE

reading, language arts, creative writing, interdisciplinary connections
gifted ed and special ed motivation

RECENT PUBLICATIONS

I've written grants and helped write curriculum guides and recently have contributed annotated book lists (6th, 7th & 8th) to the CCSD Language Arts Curriculum Guide posted on the homepage.
