For anyone reading the blog who is interested in joining as a contributor, please send me an email! I would love to find others interested in blogging about teacher leadership from IN the classroom and the difference one can make as a teacher-leader.

I'm a National Board Certified teacher (ECYA-ENS) for preschool students with special needs. I earned my doctorate in 2016 from ASU in Leadership and Innovation. My research focused on increasing leadership for special education teachers who work with paraeducators in their schools. I care about teacher leadership, special education, retention of early career teachers, National Board Certification, and improving outcomes for families affected by disabilities. I believe that teachers within the classroom should feel that their voice is valuable--and they should share their perspectives in the community to influence policies that affect us in the classrooms. The day of unfocused chatter is over. Time for action teachers!
