Introduction
Thanks for stopping by my profile page!

I'm an educational consultant and instructional technology coach based in Brooklyn, NY. Previously, I was a classroom teacher for 11 years in the Washington, D.C. area and South Florida. 

My greatest passion is helping teachers develop strong classroom management and a positive mindset so they can truly enjoy their work.

On my website, TheCornerstoneForTeachers.com, I share hundreds of pages of FREE teaching articles, lesson ideas and activities, classroom photos, printable forms/posters, and more. 


I frequently conduct workshops and webinars centered on those topics as well as technology and 21st century teaching,
