I taught elementary school for more than 10 years. Now I work as a Head Start Field Coach, helping teachers implement research-based instructional practices. I also travel around the United Sates offering training and coaching in parent education, promoting social and emotional competence in young children, school readiness, and challenging behavior.
My husband jokes that I’m the girl who knows everything about everything, and my siblings say I’ve always been bossy. What could be a more perfect career for a bossy know-it-all than coaching, writing, and teaching?
At home, I’m a wife, mom to two kids and stepmom to two more. Together, the six of us have created a household that runs smoothly even when I’m working and traveling. We are lucky enough to live close to much of our extended family in beautiful northern Colorado, where you can find me riding my bike, reading trashy novels, cooking organic meals, and playing with my kids.
