Clinical Assistant Professor, Social Studies and Teacher Education
This is my tenth year teaching in higher education, the past 3 years as Assistant Clinical Professor of Social Studies and Teacher Education at IUPUI. My passion is developing curriculum and teaching interns to do the same with authentic learning tasks and critical thinking. Prior to this, I was a Visiting Professor at IUPUI for 3 years as well as one year ABD doctoral candidate teaching at IUPUI. Three years before my IUPUI teaching experiences, I was a doctoral candidate at IUB where I also taught for 3 years. I have a wide range of teaching experiences which are listed in my courses. Eleven years ago I left the elementary classroom in a southern suburb of Chicago where I had taught for 14 years; 5 years of kindergarten, 8 years of first grade and one year of fourth grade. I co-wrote the kindergarten curriculum based on Social Studies and Science themes that were integrated with Literacy/Writing and Mathematics. This curriculum was presented for 5 years at the Illinois Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development for Kindergarten teachers. Additionally, I taught conceptual mathematics methods to teachers during the school year. Preceding my fourth grade year, I trained in Portland, OR with Susan Kovalik learning Backward Design for an intensive week and the year prior spent an intensive week in Chicago with Robin Fogarty and Brain Compatible Learning. I was able to teach Backward Design to my fourth graders and during our inquiry learning, they set up a Micro-society in our classroom complete with economic and judicial systems.

Clinical Associate Professor
My focus in course work for the School of Education involves examining the social, philosophical, and historical dimensions of education; and introducing first-year students to the field of education. Most of my scholarship is on service-learning. I incorporate service-learning into my F200 and H341 courses, and this has involved partnerships with schools, a local community center, an after school tutoring program for homeless children, an after school tutoring program for a low-income housing complex, and a program for IPS students aged 18-21 who have special needs. Other research interests include semiotics in education and multicultural education, the latter of which is a component in some of my service-learning scholarship.
Assistant Dean of Student Support and Diversity
Professor; Literacy, Culture, and Language Education
I was an elementary and middle school teacher for 10 years before earning a doctoral degree. This experience has guided my research, service, and teaching since becoming a university faculty member. I still spend considerable time in K-12 classrooms and regularly collaborate with teachers on research projects. My current research focuses on helping students to become more critical readers in terms of being aware of how texts are positioning them as readers.
