AT iin class for TPT v3I was a NY State public school music teacher for 33 years and an Adjunct Professor at New York University for several years, helping prepare young adults for the rigors of teaching students in a middle and high school setting.

I was selected as one of the first recipients of the U.S. Department of Education Christa McAuliffe Fellowship Program, Parents and Teachers Working as Partners. My interest in the essential role that parents play in education led to presenting workshops for teachers and for parents that supports skillful self-directed learning.


I am currently enjoying Act Two of my career leading workshops as an Instructional Strategies Coach. Recently I have enjoyed working with Pre-K educators, classroom and special education teachers in private and public schools and with children in various locations in the United States.

I encourage teaching practices that revitalize or sustain a child’s innate desire to achieve and encourage a child to take ownership of their learning. My passion is to ensure that when a child is learning, it feels like their mission rather than an assignment.  I have developed fun resources  to support kids so they will keep that “I can!” mindset that they were born with.
