Dear Coquille School District Community,
I am thrilled to be among you as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the District! I have lived in Coos County for the past 26 years, having worked in both the Myrtle Point (6 years) and North Bend (19 years) School Districts as an educator and Dean of Students.
In addition to working with all schools, students and educators concerning curriculum, I will also be overseeing state grants, Federal Programs (Title Grants), Tech Team, Talented and Gifted Education, as well as serving as the Testing Coordinator and homeless liaison. I will be overseeing our Teacher Mentoring program, too. Please contact me via email or phone when you have questions or need information about any of these topics.
My office hours will typically be from 8:00-5:00 throughout the work week; however, I can meet outside those hours as needed.
