Before Inver Hills, I taught in teacher education programs at universities throughout Michigan, Ohio, and Washington, including The Evergreen State College. When I am teaching, I get most excited about investigations of historical, social, and cultural issues that shape U.S. education while drawing on my years in urban and rural elementary classrooms.
Since completing graduate school at The University of Michigan and Ohio State, I have worked with federal policies, including the Workforce Investment Act and Race to the Top, and, recently, was chosen as an Education Policy Fellow in Minnesota. I authored a humorous book chapter about life in academia and have collaborated on numerous projects, including Teaching and Learning in the College Classroom. From a research perspective, I am most curious about connections among education policies and teachers’ daily experiences.
