Lines of Inquiry:
My research examines writing instruction, disciplinary literacy, and professional development and serves as a bridge to connect general and special educators in supporting struggling learners. The goal of my research is to support teachers in improving students' writing outcomes through professional development and intervention research, specifically writing-to-learn and writing within the disciplines. I am also interested in the phenomenon of teacher resilience, and am exploring that in a budding line of research.

Teaching Background:
I served as a literacy consultant for many districts in the region including Boston Public Schools and Providence Public School District. I am a certified elementary teacher, with additional teaching experiences at the preschool, middle, and high school levels.
