Phyllis focuses primarily on independent evaluation and research projects, interwoven with strands of capacity building, professional development, and project development. She supports work that’s designed to ensure success for diverse students, mentor new teachers, and provide authentic learning experiences for educators, parents, and students. The things Phyllis likes best about living in this part of the world are our Native heritage, the Aurora Borealis, bioluminescence in Puget Sound, volcanoes, waterfalls, and salmon.
It’s energizing to work at the nexus of high-quality data, meaning-making, translating findings, and empowering clients with information. That’s what gives life to my work. My collaborations at Education Northwest continuously give me the honor of working with gifted colleagues and clients who believe that together we can create engaging places of learning.
