Instructional Coordinators

Your 2019-2020 OGSD Instructional Coordinator Team

We are pleased to introduce the Oro Grande School District Instructional Coordinating Team for the 2019-2020 school year. Our purpose is to support the instructional program by monitoring the instructional design and strategies to create an environment that guides and encourages students to develop and fulfill their academic potential. We each bring our own personality and areas of interest and expertise, and we aim to provide the best possible assistance for teachers, administrators and support staff in serving our students. Please contact any member of the team for coaching support, instructional and class management resources, and any other professional needs!

It is with great excitement and pleasure that I join the OGSD family as an Instructional Coordinator. My certificated journey began in the classroom more than 12 years ago as a special education teacher. I have taught RSP, SDC Intervention and Inclusion at the secondary level. As a new teacher, I was eager to learn as much as I could about how to instruct and develop young minds into the best they could achieve. I have held on to that enthusiasm throughout my career. After obtaining my second masters degree from Azusa Pacific University, I stepped out of the classroom to find a different avenue to be of service to the educational community. This path has led me to OGSD, where I will have the honor of working alongside teachers as a coach. Outside of my work, I enjoy travel, relaxation and my beloved pets.

Education has always been a passion of mine. I have had the pleasure to live my childhood dream by having the opportunity to teach all grades K-8 in the High Desert for 13 years. After receiving my master’s degree, I decided to explore other ways to make a positive impact on students, which led me to the role of instructional coach. For the last two school years, I have had the blessing to be able to support teachers. Outside of the education world, I am a mother raising two children with my husband. We enjoy traveling, trying new foods, crafting, and fishing. I am excited to join the OGSD family on the journey of making a difference in the lives of our students.

I am excited to work alongside teachers and administrators to continue providing OGSD’s students an exceptional educational experience! For the past six years and with a strong social justice foundation from my masters program at Claremont Graduate University, my professional teaching career has taken me in various roles and opportunities around common core mathematics, culturally relevant teaching practices, technology integration, and orchestrating conversations and PLC structure amongst grade levels. When not working with teachers and students, I am busy raising two young boys with my husband. We love sports, museums and a good BBQ. I look forward to getting to know you and your students, both personally and professionally!

I am passionate about education, a Google fanatic and lifelong learner. I began my career as a 5th grade teacher in 2000. I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades. After receiving my masters in Ed. Leadership, I stepped outside the classroom to serve teachers as an instructional coach and Migrant Academy Principal. The scope of my experience and expertise has been centered around working with MTSS, PBIS, RtI, Language Learners and Differentiated Instruction. I am so excited to continue my educational journey with OGSD and support teachers in professional development, sharing best practices, improving instructional strategies and fostering relationships. I am here to support you through your journey in education. Outside of work, I serve as a board member for CapCUE. You can find my family on the weekends at the basketball and volleyball courts watching my children living their passion.
