As a clinical faculty member of the Department of Advanced Studies in Education, I teach literacy courses in the MSEd Literacy Program, the Ch/EC Undergraduate Program, and the MST Childhood Program. Additionally, I supervise MSEd Literacy Practicum and Internship candidates in their field placements each semester. My interests and passions focus around literature based literacy instruction, motivation for lifelong reading and writing, and developing short term education travel courses to allow our students to broaden their horizons and experience education in diverse contexts.
