I am a successful elementary school educator with a strong passion for creating STEM opportunities for students. My biggest accomplishment was creating a STEM-focused program in a rural elementary school as the building principal and having the school named a top 3 STEM school by Future Technology Education Conference a few years later. My content strengths are in the areas of math and technology integration. I also can provide professional development in the areas of STEM and teacher leadership.
