About Elizabeth

I hold a valid Virginia post-graduate license with endorsements in Administration & Supervision (K-12), Reading Specialist (K-12), regular elementary school (NK-4), and Gifted (K-12). My graduate work at the University of Richmond included a minor in learning disabilities.

I have taught in the Commonwealth of Virginia for over twenty-five years serving as a regular classroom teacher, a Reading Recovery teacher, a Title I teacher, a reading specialist, administrative reading specialist, and assistant principal. Most recently, I was a reading specialist for the Northampton County Public Schools and working on my doctorate in Educational Leadership and Policy with The George Washington University, Hampton Roads Campus. Prior to this, I was an Adjunct Professor of Education at Virginia Intermont College in Bristol, Virginia.
As a college professor, I taught adult learners and had the experience of working with elementary and secondary teachers. I have instructed students on using small group instruction which is part of the Differentiated Instructional Model purported by Carol Ann Tomlinson. The RTI tier is an extension of this model which is now a federal mandate. I have also worked with college students who have learning difficulties, emotional issues, and difficulties meeting deadlines. Additionally, I have worked closely with students who have demonstrated difficulty writing comprehensive essays and have tutored those using graphic organizers, flow charts, and the self-actualization writing process.

As a public school educator, I have created School Improvement Plans (SIPs), desegregated data, aligned curricula, studied AYP gains, and have extensive training in Understanding by Design (UbD) Curriculum Model. Further, I have created mock SOL assessments, studied SOL Blueprints, and developed lessons for diverse learning groups. I have also assisted with grant writing and helped secure $250,000.00 in monies for Chimborazo Elementary School.
As an assistant principal, I have conducted child study, faculty, MDR, eligibility, truancy and behavioral plan meetings. I have conducted benchmark and SOL testing sessions along with classroom observations, teacher assessments, and creating and implementing teacher improvement plans. I have participated in after school events, PTA, athletic, and band meetings. Additionally, I have dealt with disciplinary actions, bus duties, bus incidents, medical situations, and lock down procedures along with scheduling and parental/guardian meetings. I worked with families dealing with children who demonstrated self harming behaviors, depression, and suicidal tendencies.
I hold a valid Virginia post-graduate license with endorsements in Administration & Supervision (K-12), Reading Specialist (K-12), regular elementary school (NK-4), and Gifted (K-12). My graduate work at the University of Richmond included a minor in learning disabilities.
