Civic Educator︱ Cognitive Coach︱National Board Certified Teacher ︱Lifelong Learner

I am happy you are here, whether it’s for a blog post to help you plan, a podcast to learn from, or to connect! I have been in the civics educational space for over two decades and am an active teacher leader in the state of Arizona.

My hope is that you find inspiration here to feel confident in your teaching with resources for social studies, pedagogy, and creating balances that allow you as an educator to be better for yourself and your students.

As an educator and teacher leader for over two decades, my main goal is to partner with educators to be part of the solution in education by elevating teacher leaders and creating opportunities for student success.
