Assistant Professor of Elementary Education (Mathematics Emphasis)


Poe Building, 217D


I am an assistant professor of elementary education at North Carolina State University, where I teach elementary math-methods in the Department of Teacher Education and Learning Sciences. In my research, I seek to understand how teachers go about meeting the many demands of implementing current visions of ambitious and equitable mathematics instruction, whereby students have opportunities to solve challenging, worthwhile problems using strategies that they devise themselves. I also study professional learning opportunities designed to support teachers in meeting these demands, with a particular focus on the facilitation of professional learning. My current research examines productive struggle and the role of the teacher in noticing struggle and ensuring that students have sustained opportunities to experience productive struggle in their learning.
