What I Do For Charter Schools
(How Charter Schools Will Know Me)
I assist the League’s Director of Communications with the various internal and external communications projects. I am also involved in communicating with the League’s membership by creating a variety of e-newsletters and other marketing materials. In addition, I serve as a member of the League’s Policy and Advocacy Team, and will help keep schools informed about developments in the legislative session.
On Charter Public Schools
My time as a teacher in the public school system, educational consultant, and mother of three children who attend a Denver area charter school has taught me that charter schools and the autonomy, choice, and diverse models of education they represent play an important role in making sure that each student and family has access to a high-quality school that is most suitable for them. I am thrilled to be part of an organization that is dedicated to supporting this important piece of our educational landscape in Colorado.
Before coming to the League, I spent seven years as a public school teacher in Massachusetts. I worked as an Education Coordinator for the Bridge Project in Denver, I was the co-creator of the ScoopToo blog about navigating the elementary school choice process, and I spent three years as an Educational Consultant in Denver. When I am not working with the League I can be found on the tennis court trying to improve my game, spending time with my family enjoying outdoor activities, reading, and traveling. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education (minor in Sociology) and a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Literacy.
