Nationally Certified School Psychologist

PURPOSE AND BRIEF HISTORY OF MY WORK
The purpose of my work is to develop, implement, and evaluate a conceptual framework and methodology for teacher education at the preservice and graduate level. My work draws on decades of cognitive studies in education and psychology and is informed by more recent developments in the field of neuroeducation. This work has been greatly influenced by my practice as a teacher, school psychologist, and educational psychologist and teacher educator. As a result, it offers a practical approach developed in collaboration with more than 100,000 teachers and administrators over the last 15 years of my career as a teacher educator.
