I work directly with the Virginia Kindergarten Readiness Program (VKRP) statewide initiative. Prior to beginning my work here with CASTL, I was a classroom teacher, focused mainly on the primary grade levels before assuming administrative and leadership roles in Virginia school divisions as both a literacy coach and as a division level English pre-k through twelfth grade coordinator. My prior professional experience involved the coordination of curriculum and assessments, overseeing grant funding and implementation, leading teams, and data disaggregation at the global and granular levels. Additionally, I have instructed courses for the University of Virginia as an adjunct faculty member.
