Hello! I am the Instructional Coach for teachers in grades 6-12. I am starting my 15th year at Missouri Valley and my 29th year in education. I was a special education teacher for my first 24 years in education and have served as the 6-12 Instructional Coach for the past 4 years. Although I still get to work with students every day, my main focus as the Instructional Coach is on working with teachers to match effective instructional strategies with their lesson goals.
