Successful, innovative and experienced K-8 Science Educator as a leader of the school. Uses data-driven decision-making skills to prioritize best-practices among students and staff, categorized tiered differentiated instruction and adaptive teaching/coaching styles to scaffold and fit the needs of the students and staff. Increased academic achievement, student interest and student and staff confidence by means of creating an inquiry-based classroom with guided questions while too increasing rigor and stamina by providing a safe atmosphere helping lead for a desire to learn with engagement. Over the years I have successfully mentored 8 teachers, coached dozens of others, and held professional development on cross-curricular approaches, blended learning and implementing the technology. I have also held two workshops at the University of Michigan on increasing student engagement in the dreaded subject of homework based on my coming book, Reinventing Homework . I implement a variety of streamline devices to increase collaboration with staff, students, and their homes. I am a visionary leader and an initiator of a positive company culture with an appetite to learn and share. I implemented a positive culture among peers, students and the community by means of transparency communication, and immediate feedback. I am always willing to go above and beyond for the team, the parents, and most importantly the students. I am looking forward to the opportunity to be a new addition to the team.
