I recognized my call to teach in a variety of contexts with a variety of age groups since 1980. I received my B.A. in Psychology and my first Master's degree in Experiential Education and began teaching in alternative high school classrooms in private and public schools. After working in a small rural elementary/middle school in rural Northern California, I directed my own preschool for four years. In 1996, I moved to Vermont, where I completed my Master's in Children's Literature and Reading and received my VT license in Elementary Education with a Reading Specialist endorsement.
I began teaching both Children's Literature and Reading and Language Development at Champlain in 1998, later adding curriculum development and the supervision of student teachers to her teaching. I also taught courses in Champlain's Core Division. In 2009, I completed my doctorate in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. My research focused on developing teacher learning communities as models of teacher professional development. In 2012, I began teaching literacy courses in the Master's in Education program. I feel fortunate to have found my home at Champlain College, which has allowed me to share my love of teaching and learning with the teachers of tomorrow.
