Department of Education Experience
From 2001 to 2005 I worked as a Program Consultant at the Louisiana Department of Education. I worked with district teachers and other professionals within the Division of Student Standards and Assessments to develop statewide content standards and assessments that tested the mastery of these standards. In my work with the Division of Professional Development, my colleagues and I developed training modules to help teachers implement the Grade Level Expectations mandated by the federal law, No Child Left Behind (2001). We traveled throughout the state presenting the Grade Level Expectations Educational Model (GLEEM) that helped teachers develop and implement effective instructional strategies and assessments to use in their classrooms.
