About Me (Bio)
I serve as Liaison for National Geographic Education Programs to promote geographic literacy in K-12 educational communities. I also teach Social Studies Methods for the Teacher Education program at San Diego State University. Currently, I chair the Professional Development and Instructional Materials committee for the Roadmaps Research Project. As a former teacher, administrator, and professional development coordinator, I continue to seek opportunities to improve public education through teaching and learning.

This project will engage in a community-wide effort to synthesize the literature from a broad range of fields and to use the findings to create frameworks that will guide the planning, implementation, and scale-up of efforts to improve geographic education over the next decade. This will result in a set of publicly reviewed, consensus reports that will guide collaborative efforts and broaden awareness of the acute need for geographic literacy and geographic science education.
