What are the responsibilities of your office or department? 
As elementary Director of Culture and Climate Transformation, I help oversee our mission to "develop and support school improvement systems that empower all staff to transform culture and climate" so that all learners have equity of voice, resources, opportunities, and expectations.

Professional History: 

I've been part of the education profession since 1992. I taught Head Start, 1st and 2nd grades, multi-age, Title 1, and Reading Recovery. I worked for several years as a reading consultant for the Iowa Department of Education then was a principal for eleven years, first in Davenport and then in Cedar Rapids.
