Richard W. Riley College of Education and Human Sciences
M.S. Education (MSEd)

I recently moved to Martinsburg, WV from North Pole, Alaska with my family after having lived there for 23 years. I teach in Walden's MSEd program, teaching some core courses and math courses in the Mathematics Specialization.

I graduated from SUNY Potsdam with a B.A. with dual majors in Elementary Education and Mathematics. I went on to receive my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from the College of St. Scholastica via distance learning. I graduated with my EdD from Walden University with a specialization in Educational Administration and Leadership. My dissertation focused on transportation to charter schools and equity in access to these schools. Much of my focus in research has been on differentiation in the classroom, parental choice in schooling, authentic assessments in math, and integration of technology.

I have been teaching in the public school system for 25 years and have taught in Maryland, Alaska, and now in Virginia. I have taught Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades and have served as an instructional coach and math specialist.
