As a life-long educator, I am proud to work as a consultant with EdFocus. Quality curriculum, instruction and assessment lead to improved student performance. Best practices, state and national standards, and the belief that all children can learn provide teachers and districts the opportunity to improve what happens in classroom for our students. Through the examination of what is taught, how it is taught and how we measure what students know, we have the data to impact the quality of education. My experiences in the classroom, as a building administrator, and at central office have led to a long and fulfilling career in education.
