I am currently at The American School of Madrid in an instructional coach / learning support role in secondary. Previous to Madrid, I spent three years at The American School of Dubai as a teaching & learning coach PreK-G8 mathematics... and before going international, I worked in independent, non-profit schools in California. My 20 years in education includes 12 years in classrooms K-8, and then a transition to curriculum and instruction with a focus on coaching and instructional specialist work (mathematics). I find that as my professional works grows to include consulting work, the fact that I continue to stay connected to a school / classrooms is an important part of my commitment to what students and teachers "do" in classrooms. The daily classroom work is key, I continue to engage in the teaching & learning community in a way that allows me to see the growth, change, and shifts in all things T&L math!
