An educator, counselor and parent, my personal and professional interests center around cultural diversity, family and youth and the interconnected systems they navigate every day. Identifying strategies and evidence-based engagement practices and policies, the aim is to broaden perspectives, foster empathy, and build capacity. Offering 'food for thought' and inviting discussion, this site also highlights seldom discussed 'truths'. A holistic culturally-responsive approach to teaching, learning and engagement begins with parents, who hold the master key that unlocks doors to child health and wellness, academic achievement, teacher excellence and stronger school communities.
