Teaching & Professional
Research and practices in reading and math methodology for
elementary and middle school teachers are the main areas of focus.
Incorporating research strategies into classroom practice through
the use of real world scenarios/application, in particular with the
implementation of problem-based learning techniques is of high
interest. Other research interests entail the use of reading
strategies within the mathematics content areas, vocabulary
instruction and infusion in the mathematics classroom, and the
importance of using manipulatives when providing instruction in
mathematics. Utilizing various strategies when teaching my classes
as well as sharing these strategies with education majors is done
within my teaching responsibilities.
