Teaching Philosophy

With an extensive background in curricular development and dynamic instruction of English Language Arts, I have applied my doctoral studies in academic leadership to increase academic rigor, relevance, and student engagement as prerequisites for post-secondary success and retention.  Throughout my courses, students learn to demonstrate higher-order cognition by developing logical argument and incorporating scholarly sources as supportive evidence.  In addition, students hone both oral and written communication competencies through systematic instructional strategies and hands-on individual coaching.

 Parent Resources 

Welcome to my web page!  For specific assignments and course content, you will need to visit the school's Canvas online content by using a district login.  If you are a parent of a Canvas student, you can create your own login by visiting the Canvas login screen and selecting the "Parent of a Canvas User" link in the upper right hand corner.  You will need to know your child's login credentials for first time access in order to create your own login.  Follow the online instructions to create your own access.  More information about Canvas can be found in the "Parent Portal" at cdschools.org.  Additional links that I use for my students are as follows:
