Academic Background

I am interested in better understanding the perspectives of students and teachers in K-12 schools and after school programs. In pursuing this work, I have used a variety of qualtitative research techniques including cultural analysis of discourse, narrative analysis, and arts based methods (e.g. photography, collagemaking). I taught middle school and high school science and interdisciplinary studies in several urban public schools in San Antonio, Texas. Since moving to the Northeast in 1998, I have continued working in K-12 urban public schools in a variety of capacities, including mentor teacher, educational researcher, school accreditation consultant, and teacher educator. My degrees include a B.S. in Biology and Society from Cornell University, an M.A.T. from Trinity University in San Antonio, and an Ed.D. from Harvard University.
