This is my eighteenth year in public education. I started as a 5th and 66th-grade teacher in a country school outside of Wisconsin Rapids, WI. After seven years of teaching, I served as a dean of students at a junior high, which developed into an assistant principalship along with athletic director duties. As an elementary principal for the Mineral Point Unified School District, I am enjoying the curriculum, instruction and assessment side of education. I write for ASCD (www.ascd.org) and Lead Literacy (www.leadliteracy.com). I also teach online graduate courses in curriculum design and instructional leadership for the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
