About

My professional mantra is to make data and its analysis available and meaningful for different audiences and translating this principle to my teaching. Understanding data can be overwhelming for some and it is rewarding to translate data and analysis into a useable form, to demystify it, make it accessible and valuable. I am a strong supporter of open communication between teacher and student and between research partners. The practical application of scientific inquiry in partnership with stakeholders is critical. The ability to partner with a broad range of stakeholders including teachers, principals, administrators, parents, external partners and the general public is essential.
