Technology knowledge

Technology isn’t a cure all– but it is a tool I have worked to leverage to create stronger, more equitable experiences for students and their families.

Teaching expertise

Research skills

what I believe

every student deserves an
empowering  education 

All students deserve an empowering education, a teacher who nurtures their dreams, and a school that helps them thrive, not just survive. My passion is in bridging the gap between our rhetoric and students’ lived experiences by drawing on educational technology, research tools, and the wisdom of the educators and families already doing the work. 

My passion projects

The real question is what do we do about it? This website has practical tips and resources for detracking.

The goal of is to do both and to help bridge the gap between what students with disabilities deserve, and what they too often receive in schools.
