Biography

Professional Interests

Teaching

At IUS I teach Secondary Education - Science and Mathematics. Previously I taught graduate and undergraduate courses in mathematics and education as well as chaired 5 PhD’s in Mathematics Education. I began my teaching career as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ghana, West Africa, and then taught Middle School Mathematics in Southern Indiana.

Research

With 40+ national and international publications, I have diversity of coauthors – from single authorship to fellow mathematics education researchers and graduate students to educational psychologists to engineering professors and classroom teachers. I investigate and publish empirical mathematics education research and add writings for the dissemination of research for the teacher-practitioner.  My research agenda involves mixed-methods studies with graduate students and faculty on learning in the content area; action research with elementary and middle school students and teachers on reflective writing in problem solving; and curricula design and classroom assessment with university personnel and secondary teachers.

Service

I am a Past-President of School Science and Mathematics, a Past Vice-President of Research Council on Mathematics Learning, and a Past-Chair of Northern Illinois University (NIU) Mathematical Sciences Teacher Education Program. In 2005 I received NIU’s Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award
