I am a retired Orange County Public School secondary teacher and instructional coach.
My first teaching position was with a small private school for autistic teens and adults. After having a family, I became certified to teach social studies and English in secondary schools. For the next 18 years I taught high school social studies and served as a dean. I spent an additional five years in middle school, first as a social studies teacher and then as an instructional coach. The last seven years of my 31-year career I was an instructional coach, supporting mostly secondary schools and their reading teams.
