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.
