EMST, in progress since Fall 2012

Research Interests:
I have been a doctoral student in the Education in Math, Science, and Technology program since the fall of 2012. Before coming to UC Berkeley, I taught middle school math and science, led professional development workshops for teachers, coached teachers in grades K-8 to improve math instruction, and worked on a project to design one-on-one number sense assessments for upper elementary and middle school students. My research interests include teacher preparation and education, how to support students to develop number sense through discussions of computation strategies, and how to help teachers to move towards more equitable teaching practices through discussion and inquiry.
