For Administrators/Coordinators - As an educational consultant I specialize in developing frameworks and planners. My role is to make your ideal learning environment happen by designing the frameworks and planners that meet your school’s needs. When I take on a job, I come as a blank slate with no preconceived ideas about how you should run your school. It is your school, and you know your staff, your clientele, and your students. Most importantly, you know your vision, your philosophy and your values. My job is to make your vision a reality.
