My research examines approaches to teaching for social justice within and despite accountability-driven K-12 and teacher preparatory contexts. In addition to my published work, I also work closely with local parents, schools, and communities to address pressing issues of social justice within and beyond the classroom. I was a co-founder of the Ladera Ranch Social Justice Committee, and am an active member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), the National Association of Multicultural Education (NAME), and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
