A passionate educator with expertise in leadership, professional development, coaching, curriculum development, and technology integration to strengthen instruction in Math and Science. Has an extensive academic background in the area of STEM, Public Relations and School Administration. A seasoned professional development provider invested in developing teachers’ content knowledge, pedagogy and use of technology and digital platforms to deliver effective instruction, monitor students’ work and provide timely feedback. Has experience in establishing and running highly effective PLCs. Uses Data to drive all the decision making and to develop action plans to address the needs. Has a good command over Instructional program selection and working with resistant teachers.
I have been an educator for over 22 years. I believe that all teachers and their students can be successful as long as there is a culture of commitment to excellence and growth. In my last seven years as an administrator I have developed my skills as an instructional supervisor and coach as I worked closely with my team of teachers. My work has led to the expansion of teacher capacity and a consistent increase annually in student outcomes.
In my current role as the Supervisor of Humanities for CCSP, it is my responsibility to assess and guide curriculum development and instruction for the English Language Arts, Social Studies, Visual Arts, Music and World Language programs.
Curriculum Development - It is important that the curriculum we offer at CCSP is current, culturally relevant and is meeting the needs of our students. The gaps incurred by remote instruction during the C-19 pandemic have added challenges that we are working to address. I along with the Curriculum and Instruction team are assessing our current curriculum and looking at what needs to be adjusted or changed to meet the needs of our students.
Coaching - The other part of my role is to meet with teachers regularly to guide them in their instructional practice. I use evidence gathered from informal observations, student assessment data and teacher self-reflection to guide the focus of our meetings. Teachers will view video or live models to reflect on their own practice and develop next steps to improve their instructional practice.
As a lifelong NJ resident I am proud to have this opportunity to serve at CCSP. I have been married for 19 years and have two daughters, one each in 6th and 2nd grade. My girls keep me active in the school community and connected to the needs of elementary and middle school students. I am a first generation American and proud to speak fluent Hungarian and be the first from my family to graduate college.
