Robin has more than 24 years of education experience in Arizona and Washington as a middle school and junior high teacher, instructional coach, district director, assistant principal, and principal. Her expertise in teaching and learning- along with her enthusiasm for the magic of everything that middle school and junior high bring- allow her to establish authentic connections with students, develop creative strategies to support their individual needs, and make social and academic learning meaningful.
She is passionate about school climate and culture, teacher development, and ensuring that student voice and engagement are alive and reflected in their school and space. Robin understands the elements of a positive school climate and how it impacts students and staff, both academically and emotionally. Throughout her career, she has successfully shifted various school climates by implementing social emotional learning components, Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS), utilizing restorative practices with students, and engaging diverse community groups, individuals, and organizations to provide appropriate wraparound supports, connections, and experiences for students.
As a deeply dedicated, compassionate leader and student advocate, Robin is thrilled to be a Robin Coach and work with students, teachers and administrators to support environments where students can develop their authentic selves, navigate the often confusing waters of their adolescent years, and become equipped with tools and strategies that allow them to thrive in all areas of life.
