    As an experienced educator and administrator I strive to enable teachers to rise to a higher standard in their field.  As the Director of Professional Development, opportunities are given to faculty and staff in all areas to assist in increasing their expertise.  Many offerings are listed through our professional development platform, Frontline Professional Growth.  Also, we are fortunate to have access to the ASCD learning system.  I’m here to assist you in the areas of gifted education, achievement of National Board Certification and by offering multiple opportunities for professional development. 

    In the words of Helen Keller: Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
