I am a proud San Francisco public school parent and school administrator. I am also a feature writer for the Golden Gate Mother’s Group (GGMG) magazine and have several articles that have been published in Edutopia and School Leaders Now. My favorite topics to explore are around issues where parenting and education intersect. Having worked as a school teacher, instructional coach, dean, assistant principal and principal, I know the ins and outs of our schools and connect easily with educators, school leaders and parents.  I have presented for hundreds of teachers and school leaders across California in Systematic ELD, teacher evaluation, restorative practices and data analysis.  I can quiet a room of 500+ people young or old in under a minute and turned around one of San Francisco's lowest performing middle schools into one with a waitlist.  I have a theater background and love public speaking, presenting and facilitating. Others say I am dynamic and personable.  I know how to present engaging and relevant content to the needs of any group, whether it's students, parents, teachers, administrators etc.
