    • Great teachers can have a lasting influence on who we are, and who we strive to be. I am interested in exploring the complexity of great teaching, and how educational systems can support inspiring and transformative learning experiences in the classroom. Currently, my work is focused on secondary math and science teachers who successfully remove barriers to equity for historically marginalized students.
