I have been on faculty since 1997 teaching undergraduate and graduate classes in the department of education. I have been engaged in teacher preparation and technology training of undergraduate and graduate students since 1992. Working with candidates preparing to teach and with graduate students has been a pleasure. I enjoy exploring new information with them and pushing them to expand their understanding of teaching and student learning. For the past several years I have taught the capstone course, in the Curriculum and Instruction Master’s program, that has an emphasis on teacher leadership and its effect on the varied forms of professional development and professional learning. One of my areas of interest is in professional learning that represents best practices in teaching and learning that ultimately impacts student learning.
