I’m the Co-founder and Executive Director at North Star: Self- Directed Learning for Teens in Sunderland, Massachusetts. I’ve been working intensively with teenagers and their families since 1991.
Previously a middle school social studies teacher, first in Prince George’s County, Maryland, then in Amherst, Massachusetts, I left the Amherst school system to found North Star. I brought along my extensive education and training, including a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Amherst College, and an M.A.T. in Social Studies from Brown University.
I live in Montague, Massachusetts, with my family.
