I am an educator, serving children and the field for over 30 years as a teacher and principal. I am passionate about education and strive to make it better every day. I am particularly interested in educator learning, leadership, organizational change, progressive and innovative practices in education, and leveraging best practices at school to make an improvement so that all students get the best possible education. Currently, I am the proud principal of Monroe Elementary School in Wyandotte, Michigan. Monroe is a learning and student-centered school that values both student and adult collaborative learning. Monroe Elementary was named a nationally recognized Model PLC School by Solution Tree in 2018.
In 2020, I Published Lead With Instructional Rounds: Creating a Culture of Professional Learning, a Lead Like a Pirate Guidebook, with Dave Burgess Consulting. In 2021, I was part of a 100 author collaboration to write 100 No-Nonsense Things That All Teachers Should Stop Doing and100 No-Nonsense Things That All Administrators Should Stop Doing, both published by Pushing Boundaries Consulting.
I enjoy connecting with a professional learning network (PLN) through Twitter, Twitter chats, blogs, and events. I am an educational author, blogger, and presenter. I present and consult around Instructional Rounds, Professional Learning Communities, School Closings/Mergers and Transition Plans, Positive Behavior Supports and Restorative Practices.
I am married to David, and I have three beautiful and kind children – a daughter, Mia, and twin boys, Matthew and Zachary.
