Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. -attributed to Plutarch

Welcome to our Engaged Classroom Cohort! I am so excited to join you in this innovative district initiative, and I applaud your commitment to envisioning something different for your students. As your coach, I will serve as a resource and support to you while facilitating the collaboration, learning, and growth of our team. Together, we will design learning environments that meet the needs of the whole child and foster the rich elements of the AH Profile of a Learner.

What an opportunity to stretch beyond the traditional ideas of teaching, learning and classrooms! I know that this does not come without challenge. But as we learn together, reflect, and focus on what is best for kids, the rest will take care of itself. I'm honored to begin this adventure with you.
