Day to Day

If a student were to shadow me, they would see me going out to schools and visiting with building principals to see if i can help or support their efforts to make their school a welcoming place for all students. They may see me holding meetings with different groups from around the district discussing factors that help improve student achievement towards post-secondary opportunities.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

First, you need to have a passion to teach or work with young people. In order to teach you need to get a degree in education. I also received my Masters in Education with a focus on Administration. My grad school degree was in Administrative Education ie...Superintendent credentials.
