Areas of Expertise:
  • Science education
  • Teacher education
  • Professional development

My research involves exploring the impacts of inquiry-based learning experiences and the best ways to support teachers in their development of this pedagogy. Research clearly demonstrates that the central factor in the quality of students’ educational experiences is the teacher. My own research includes analyses of the best ways to prepare teachers for meeting the instructional challenges of urban classrooms in the 21st century. A substantial need persists for high quality professional development experiences for teachers at both the K-12 and university levels. My expertise includes both implementing and researching the impacts of professional development experiences.
