"Carrie knows her stuff!" - American Young Voices
As a teacher and life-long student, I love learning, reading, researching, writing, and teaching.
I have 10 years of experience in curriculum design and writing, and educational administration in the non-profit, K-12, and private sectors.
I specialize in standards-mapping and designing curriculum to meet state standards, but am open to other curriculum needs as well.
My deepest passions lie in music education and Christian education, but I am happy to learn about whatever your organization needs!
I pride myself on my attention to detail and professional approach to work. I hope to have the opportunity to help you reach your goals!
