Supervisor, Educational Technology & Programs
Arlington Public Schools
I have experience as an instructional coach, building level administrator, and district level administrator. I have contributed to teams that have lead initiatives in Tiered Support Systems, Literacy, Curriculum Writing, and Educational Technology.
Vision for VSTE
My vision for VSTE within the next three years is to increase minority representation within the ranks and leadership of the VSTE organization. I would like to see more men and women of color visibly active in their school communities, state conferences, and both national and international conferences. I would also like to revamp the mentor/mentee program to continue to build a pipeline of individuals to be ready to lead VSTE into the future.
