After teaching elementary school for 14 years, I took a job as a Research Specialist and was subsequently promoted to Director of Research & Evaluation with the DeKalb County School District in Georgia. I worked as Educational Measurement & Assessment Specialist with Virginia Beach City Public Schools from 2008 through 2019 and have been on the adjunct faculty at Old Dominion University since 2014. I am a founding member of Edjacent, an educator design collaborative, and regular contributor to Edjacent's blog.
