Tiffany is a public school lead teacher based in Eugene, Oregon. Her history in public education spans over two decades, with classroom teaching experiences ranging from kindergarten through 9th grade. Tiffany has served as an educational leader in many capacities, both at the middle school and elementary school levels, collaborating with experts in academic, behavioral and technical instruction. For over a decade Tiffany has focused her work as lead teacher, Behavior Teacher Leader, PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) Team Leader, IPBS Team facilitator, grant writer, STEAM program teacher, and occasional guest principal at a small, teacher-lead public choice school with a school-wide Title 1 program.
Tiffany completed her interdisciplinary BS in Elementary Education, with a focus on Integrated Sciences and support areas in geography and music. After teaching for ten years, with experiences working in regular ed. classrooms, with students considered academically and behaviorally at-risk, and in grades K-9, she completed an MEd. program, Integrated Teaching Through the Arts, from Lesley University.
During this time, she helped both of her children start the process of navigating public school, and learned about elementary learning and social growth through the lens of a parent. Professionally, Tiffany has participated in a wide variety of leadership teams, including Multicultural Representatives, Health and ELA Textbook Adoption, Jon Saphier's Skillful Teacher and Skillful Leader work, Learning about Educational Learning Network, and PBIS.
Tiffany undertook the Initial Administrative Licensure Program at the University of Oregon, and now has both her Legacy Teaching License and her Principal License. She integrates these varied skillsets and lenses when she facilitates discussions at the building and district levels and in her work with The Oregon Department of Education in refining assessments and analyzing instructional technology.
All of these experiences have provided Tiffany with a broad spectrum of opportunities to see varied systems and strategies put in place and tested, to develop and implement new instructional and behavioral content, and to develop data-driven resilience and a depth of compassion she brings to all aspects of her work.
Tiffany is motivated to continue developing tools and strategies for educators and students focused on supporting student's social-emotional development through standards-aligned lessons and structures. She is available for both online and personal consultation.
