Claim to Fame

I like to think of myself as an evangelist for the power of high-quality online and blended learning – and a non-stop advocate for making online/blended learning opportunities available to every student. On a day-to-day basis, that means doing everything I can to make sure educators, parents and students know how Connections Learning can meet their educational needs today and tomorrow.

I am honored to serve as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of iNACOL, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning. For fun I help my husband run his art school for kids on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and dig in the dirt in my backyard garden in Brooklyn, NY.
