As an educator with more than 30 years of experience, I have marveled at the joys and embraced the challenges of the teaching profession. It has always been my goal to engage students in meaningful learning opportunities and to create a classroom environment where every person is valued and affirmed.
As an EdFOCUS consultant, I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with other teachers around the instructional standards and write unit plans for their students. From my own experience, I know the value of EdFOCUS’ site-based professional development. Now as a consultant, I have the opportunity to share the practical information necessary to implement curriculum mapping, effective questioning strategies, differentiated instruction, and other effective pedagogy.
