Current work includes
- Mathematics curriculum development in a Nursery through Eighth Grade Independent School in Manhattan,
- Support in mapping curriculum for an independent school in Brooklyn, as they grow to a K-5 program. The curriculum developed infused the major tenets of Reggio, basing project work in Social Studies and building an intentional community, while challenging the children academically.
