Jo, Instructional Coach

Instructional Coach

Jo has a master's degree in Education, along with over 35 years of experience in the field. She is passionate about education, and this is reflected in her wide variety of experiences. She has used Project Approach in a myriad of classrooms-from preschool through 5th grade-for more than 30 years, and has trained educators across the U.S. and UK in its use. In 2003, she co-founded The Emerson School. She has worked with children of all ages, from early childhood through middle-school, has conducted many workshops and classes on the implementation of Project Approach, and was the executive director of a Project Approach pre-school for four years. For the past nine years, she has worked with pre-service elementary teachers at the university level, incorporating Project Approach work into her many classes. She is so excited to be back as a regular part of the Emerson community.
