I have worked as a classroom teacher K-8.  I earned my B.S. and M.S. from Portland State University, Portland, Oregon.  After several years of teaching, I pursued a full-time doctoral degree at Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon and concurrently finish my administrative credentials at the University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon.  Since that time, I have had the opportunities to work as an Assistant Principal at the Middle School and High School levels, an Elementary School Principal, a Director of Curriculum and Instruction, a Professional Development Specialist, and an Assistant Professor of Education.  Currently, I am an Educator Advocate Consultant for The Center of Teacher Effectiveness.  My doctoral research investigated the classroom environments in Whole Language and Judicious Discipline classrooms. I was deeply honored to present my research on Judicious Discipline at the 1st China-U.S. Conference on Education in Beijing, China.

Workshop Description:

In our schools today, educators are asked to meet every student's needs in the classroom. As a result, educators work diligently to seek tools that deepen their impact on students. Clearly, educators have a challenging job. Every student does not have the same abilities or motivation and the fact is students learn differently. Therefore, differentiated instructional strategies are most valuable because they respond to the students' best ways of learning. They provide students with opportunities to demonstrate what they've learned in ways that capitalize on their strengths and interests. The Time To Teach Differentiated Instructional Model includes five research-based components that directly increase student engagement and achievement by promoting attention and interest, connectedness and relevance, positive feelings, self-efficacy, and best practices. In this lively, interactive workshop session, educators will learn strategies that maximize learning for every student. Upon returning to their schools and districts, educators will have gained strategies that can be shared with their colleagues to challenge students who are advanced, reach students in the "middle" as well as struggling at-risk students and provide opportunities for students to practice various learning modalities.  As a result of this workshop, educators will walk away with relevant lesson designs that include responsive activities to instruction that capture a student's interest and catapult student achievement to a "new" and “higher level” ---every educator’s dream!
