As an Instructional Coach, I work closely with new teachers, coordinate professional development trainings, plan family nights & parent trainings,coordinate Cedar Grove's Response to Intervention process (3rd-5th grades) as we strive to meet the academic needs of all learners.
I have 30 years experience in education, 26 of which are in Tennessee. I have taught at CGE since we first opened our doors in 1997! My classroom experience includes grades K, 3, 4, & 6. This is my 11th year as Instructional Coach.
The great joy I receive from my job here at CGE comes from observing the many relationships being formed...teachers with students, co-workers with each other, students with other students-these relationships are the foundation of learning and growing-emotionally, mentally, and academically.
"Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be." -Rita Pierson, Educator
