Research Interests: My research, teaching, development design, and service center on the professional education of teachers along the professional continuum -- pre-service teachers to teacher-leaders. I am interested in how teachers learn to hold their mathematical knowledge needed for teaching in ways that allow them to enact equitable and socially just mathematics for each and every student. Towards this end, I study how systems, professional learning, and instructional tools support teachers to enact equitable mathematics teaching. I am particularly interested in how teachers support mathematical practices, mathematical modeling, computational thinking, and data literacy in K12 learning environments. My teaching and research interests are grounded in my experience as a former secondary mathematics teacher who worked in traditional and non-traditional schools. Through my work in mathematics education and educational research I am committed to working along-side students, teachers, and community members to interrogate persistent injustice in our educational system and support active agency to expose and work against injustice in its many forms.
