Evonne has served as an educator in three states, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and California. She has been a classroom teacher, a Comer School Development Program facilitator, a school administrator, a county level program coordinator for English Learners and Small School Districts, a county level Director of Curriculum and Instruction, and ended her “schooling” career as a district Assistant Superintendent.
Her experiences in schools has led her to speak and write, with passion, about what she has observed over the years. Her desire is that schools become true partners in facilitating the unique and individualized education every young person deserves.
While she served at every level with distinction, her greatest accomplishment and pride comes from being the mother of four wonderful and caring adult children and their spouses, and seven amazingly bright and beautiful grandchildren.
This website is hopefully a place where truth and reason reside. It came about from a deep desire to make our schools work better on behalf of every student. All children deserve to have conditions in which they can thrive, grow, and learn without fear of threat, intimidation, failure, or coercion. All children deserve to learn in a safe environment that nurtures their individualism and supports their interests while enabling them to become independent, creative and productive young people.
Your work resonates. Great stuff.
