I have been teaching at Lyndale since 1995, when Lyndale was an intermediate school for grades 4,5 and 6. Before teaching at Lyndale, I taught in San Antonio, TX, Garland, TX, Corsicana, TX, and in the Mississippi Delta. I received my Talent Development & Advanced Learner Education Certificate in June 2013 and have served on the MPS Talent Development and Gifted Resources District Wide Steering Committee. I am married and I have two wonderful daughters. Susan is a kindergarten teacher and Helen is an Administrative Assistant.
 
As Advanced Differentiation Specialist at Lyndale, I co-teach and work with classroom teachers to make sure that the core curriculum is differentiated to meet the needs of all students, especially advanced learners. Our goal is that your child receives differentiated instruction throughout the day. Approximately 70 per cent of my time is collaboration with teachers. Thirty percent is spent in direct services with students, including teaching the Socratic Seminar (2nd - 5th grade) and Telescoped Math (4th and 5th grade).
