Karen is an award-winning educator and coach who is passionate about providing teachers with highly effective, differentiation and literacy training. Her 40-year career includes teaching grades 3-12, teaching college courses, and serving as a literacy coach for over 14 years.
As a National Writing Project Teacher Consultant, Karen found her love for reading and writing. Recently, Karen completed a successful four-year term as an instructional coach with the NC DPI’s District and School Transformation Division team who worked to turn around 118 of North Carolina's lowest-performing schools.
Karen customizes professional development that is research-based, highly focused, and differentiated.
She believes the best way to learn is through activity-based professional development allowing teachers to construct a hands-on understanding of the strategies needed for success in their classrooms. Karen creates visual examples of her strategies, including classroom photos and videos she creates, along with model lessons so teachers have concrete examples to transform their instruction and enhance student learning.
Her goal is for every teacher to have clear targets to reach post-training, to clarify why these goals are critical to measuring success, and to define planned methods to assess teachers’ growth toward these targets.
