Biography Statement

I am a committed and passionate educator and researcher, having worked for the past 14 years in a number of diverse educational settings, including Los Angeles and Philadelphia. From my preparation in the fields of linguistics, anthropology, and education, I have developed a focused, interdisciplinary approach to the tasks and challenges of the field. My particular aim has been to investigate and address the educational experiences of multilingual/multicultural students in the public school setting and the disciplinary literate identity of single subject preservice teachers.
