Title: Assistant Professor

I am interested in research that translates theory into practice in K-12 settings. This includes:
- describing how teachers develop adaptive expertise and pedagogical content knowledge, and how schools of education can better prepare teachers
- exploring and expanding disciplinary literacy practices in science instruction
- building stamina for silent reading and comprehension across disciplines
Before moving into higher education I taught for 17 years in K-12 classrooms, so I am interested in research that prepares and sustains better teaching in literacy (reading, writing, speaking, listening) across disciplines, and better preparation of students to be actively literate citizens. This includes improving practices for preparing new teachers, and for ongoing professional development of teachers. I explore the many ways teachers adapt to meet the needs of all their students by considering and responding to cultural and ethnic diversity, economic challenges, and academic diversity.
