I know that in order to be an effective educator I need to be a life-long learner. Throughout all of my years in education I have been a collaborator working with others on launching two high schools, one in the Bronx, and one in Sedona. Both emphasized integrated curriculum, and performance based assessments. From there I was a district curriculum director, and following that a k-8 principal for a decade combined. I promote a tone of decency at school, and I enjoy carrying out our collective vision of our students working to their highest potential as individuals and within groups, on the field, in the classroom, on the stage, in the studio and even at lunch! I enjoy hiking, museums, cooking and my family.
