I am the Coordinator of 21st Century Numeracy at Springfield Public Schools in Springfield, MO. I also teach a graduate course at Drury University on Improving K-12 math instruction. Prior to that, I was Numeracy Coach, a Math Recovery Intervention Specialist, and a classroom teacher. I absolutely love what I do and feel very fortunate to get to work with such amazing teachers and students every day.
I have an M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction and an M.S. in Educational Leadership.
I have two boys, one in 4th grade and the other is a Senior in high school. We have a dog named Isengard (because yes we are that nerdy).
I love to make and create and I love teaching math. Finding new ways to engage students in mathematics through problem based learning and inquiry are passions of mine. Other things I love are coding, tree hugging, sea turtles, science fiction and comics!
