Current Project(s):

  • My research and teaching interests are focused on partnerships between teacher education programs and the students, families, and communities they serve. In working towards modeling more democratic, less hierarchical teacher education programs, I am interested in:Community-based teacher education programs working towards social transformationPre-service teacher learning, particularly teachers of Color, and their conceptualization of the work of teachingThe intersection of learning theories, critical pedagogies, and the history of schooling as a space for both reproduction and revolution
