I was a competitive figure skater and theater major growing up, but ended up teaching (thought it would be easy! It wasn't but I loved it!). I landed in administration to lead a gifted program. A Ph.D. in Ed Psych from Mich State led me to a job as a corporate training manager, then independent consultant. I found security and creative opportunities as e-learning manager at Cisco, but now I'm finally back in education. I was rejuvenated by a 3 year experience helping schools after Katrina. Much of what was broken in 1980 is still broken. I'd like to help fix it.
