    Instruction & Personalized Learning Lead

        Here's a little information about me ... I began teaching at Excel Academy/Patrick Henry High School in August 2002.

        I started out teaching Orientation (when it was a whole week long and none of it was online!). I taught Orientation for 3 1/2 years, science for one semester, and taught English until May 2017, when I became the Instruction & Personalized Learning Lead. My focus now is providing professional development to teachers. 

          I love working at EXCEL because of the opportunities for success that we offer our students, including flexibility, choice, individualization, and positive relationships with teachers and fellow students. 

        I grew up and lived for many years in Indiana (Go Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers!!!) I have lived in Georgia since October 2001 and have become a fan of the Atlanta Braves. I haven't always been a teacher, having spent many years working in various settings, including state government, international manufacturing, and nonprofit organizations.

         I am married and have a sweet and crazy Schnoodle named Pita.
