School of Education

Graduated with PhD 2015

My primary areas of interest are identity (both of emerging bilingual students and their teachers), instructional practices for emerging bilinguals, and the impact of international education experiences for marginalized students and their communities. I am currently a coach for teachers implementing CSR (Collaborative Strategic Reading) instructional strategies in the Denver Public Schools middle school system. I am concerned with the educational implications of mainstream US society’s understanding and treatment of linguistically and culturally diverse students and how this impacts their social and academic development.
