Ph.D., Mathematics Education, University of Minnesota

M.A., Mathematics Education, University of Minnesota

B.S., Child Development & Early Childhood Education, University of Pittsburgh

Themes of my professional work include professional development,
equity, preservice mathematics methods courses, and rational numbers. I
have conducted research on the effective teaching of rational numbers
and on mathematics teacher enhancement activities aimed at assisting
teachers to focus on children's thinking and to help all students
succeed in mathematics. My current interests lie in (1) developing and
conducting professional development to support teachers in enhancing
their teaching to help all students succeed in mathematics and (2)
developing programs for Elementary Mathematics Specialists.
