I started this blog to make the collaboration and support work I do with educators more accessible and transparent. The posts reflect resources used in professional learning sessions, materials developed in collaboration with colleagues, and other information that might be helpful for educators seeking equitable instructional practices and materials. Collaboration and feedback is essential to this work; if you have resources you think might be helpful or if you use resources posted on this blog please let me know (email@example.com).
As an educator, I focus my work on supporting instruction, resources, and programs centered on instructional equity. Starting in 2005, I worked as a classroom teacher, program coordinator, and an instructional coach first in California and later in Nevada public middle and high schools. Much of this work was concentrated on supporting reform efforts, providing professional learning to teachers and administrators, conducting classroom observations with feedback, and ensuring educators have access to and practice with aligned instructional resources. I have also work with various education consultant and support organizations, including EdReports, OCTAE (Federal Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education), TNTP, University of California Berkeley History-Social Studies Project, Achieve, and StandardsWork. This work provides resources, professional learning, curricular materials review, and instructional coaching focused on literacy instruction to various schools, districts, and states around the nation. Currently, I am a Designer at Student Achievement Partners, where my work focuses on the intersection of secondary literacy and culturally relevant pedagogies.
