Meet Andy

Prior to my current work as Vice President of Network Membership at Modern Teacher,  I was a middle school professional educator for 21 years and worked closely with professional teachers aligning customized professional development. I began my career as a seventh and eighth grade science teacher and have served as a middle school athletic director, assistant principal and most recently as a lead principal for 15 years.

I take great pride in having led a one-to-one initiative within my middle school and providing high engagement instructional techniques for the professional staff. I strongly believe in developing the leadership capacity of teachers and empowering them to be primary decision makers regarding the objectives, goals and trajectory of a school building and district. 

I love connecting with like-minded leaders engaged in the work of transformation, and I would love to learn more about your district's current initiatives, goals, and next steps.
