BiographyI have spent most of my career working with students who I used to consider to be "at-risk" but now have come to recognize them as "non-dominant." I am fully aware of the obstacles students face and educators face in a system not well designed for deep collaboration and more engaging educational opportunities.
Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
I do extensive research on achievement gaps, opportunity gaps, and supporting educators with turning knowledge into action. I am also deeply involved with research around leveraging collaborative teacher teams, adult learning theory, and consulting with school leaders and teachers to improve systematic interventions.
I enjoy travel with my family, yoga, basketball, hiking, and reading science fiction.
