I have several areas in which I facilitate, coach and present. I engage in this work in both face-to-face and virtual contexts. Some of my most recent sessions are described below. However, my preference is to co-construct sessions and series with hosts to best meet the needs of the groups with whom I work.

Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment

I specialize in any professional learning that focuses on assessment design, analysis and response. I can share information and research, work with teachers to create systems and tools, and offer support through targeted coaching. If there is an aspect of exploring the connections between curriculum, instruction and assessment that a team wants to explore, I can dive in! I have worked in a variety of contexts, including many provinces and territories, states and international schools.

Leading for Learning and Strategic Planning


I have worked with departments, coaches, schools and systems to guide their work. I center my work through a student-focused lens and invite teams to consider multiple, connected aspects of their strategic work to facilitate change and growth. I favour systems that are moving to flattening the hierarchy of leadership in education and embracing a holistic approach to adult learning..
